Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Ascites E B RIA
Keratan sulfate (KS), also called keratosulfate, is any of several sulfated glycosaminoglycans (structural carbohydrates) that have been found especially in the cornea, cartilage, and bone. It is also synthesized in the central nervous system where it participates both in development[1] and in the glial scar formation following an injury. Keratan sulfates are large, highly hydrated molecules which in joints can act as a cushion to absorb mechanical shock.
Catalog #K0197-01
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot, ELISA and RIA. May be used in a competitive inhibition assay to measure keratan sulfate levels. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 1:1000-1:4000
ELISA: 1:5000-1:20,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.    
Clone TypeMonoclonal
Clone No2Q544
ConcentrationNot Determined
FormSupplied as a liquid. No preservative added.
ImmunogenHuman articular cartilage proteoglycan digested with chondroitinase ABC
SpecificityRecognizes 2-3 disaccharide units on both skeletal (type II) and corneal (type I) keratan sulfate chains either in isolated or proteoglycan-bound form. The epitope is resistant to proteolytic or alkaline cleavages and is partially sensitive to keratanase or other endo-b-galactosidase treatment. Species Crossreactivity: human, bovine, sheep, porcine, canine and mouse (adult). No crossreactivity with chicken limb bud proteoglycans, dermatan sulfate proteoglycans of cartilage and proteoglycans of rat chondrosarcomas
