Antigens are peptides or recombinant or native dependent on the production method.

Melanoma-associated antigen D1 antibody was raised in Rabbit using the peptide with sequence C-EAEARAEARNRMGIGDE derived from Mouse Melanoma-associated antigen D1 as the immunogen.
Rabbits are used for polyclonal antibody production by fitzgerald. Rabbit antibodies are very stable and can be stored for several days at room temperature. fitzgerald adds sodium azide and glycerol to enhance the stability of the rabbit polyclonal antibodies. Anti-human, anti mouse antibodies to highly immunogenic selected peptide sequences are" monoclonal like" since the epitope to which they are directed is less than 35 amino acids long.
