Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
Human DSCAM (Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule) is a 230 kD axonal guidance molecule that is a member of the Ig superfamily. It is synthesized as a mature, 2005 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. There is a large, 1578 aa extracellular domain (ECD) and a 389 aa cytoplasmic region. The ECD shows ten C2-type Ig-like domains and six fibronectin type III repeats. One soluble splice form is known. This contains all the ECD modules and ends after aa 1571 of the precursor. This form has a unique C-terminal ten amino acids. DSCAM is found on axonal and dendritic processes. It also forms homophilic complexes among cells. Overexpression is associated with Down's syndrome. The ECD of human is 98% and 77% aa identical to mouse and zebrafish DSCAM ECD, respectively.
Catalog #D9635-50
HybridomaProduced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with purified, NS0-derived, recombinant human DSCAM (rhDSCAM; aa 18-1595: Accession #NP001380).
ApplicationsWestern Blot: This antibody can be used at 1-2ug/ml with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human DSCAM. Using a colorimetric detection system, the detection limit for rhDSCAM is approximately 25 ng/lane under non-reducing and reducing conditions. Chemiluminescent detection will increase sensitivity by 5 to 50 fold.
Direct ELISA: This antibody can be used at 0.5-1.0ug/ml with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human DSCAM. The detection limit for rhDSCAM is approximately 3 ng/well.
Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application.
Storage and StabilityLyophilized powder may be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile PBS with 40-50% glycerol and store at -20°C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
