CD18 (Leukocyte Function Associated Antigen, LFA-1 beta2)
Description:
Applications:
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Flow Cytometry: 1:5-1:25. Use 20ul to label 10e6 cells.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.

Purity:
Purified
Form
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 0.1% sodium azide, before the addition of glycerol to 40 .
Specificity:
Recognizes the rat b2 integrin, which is designated CD18. The b2 integrin may be associated with the integrin aL, aX or aM subunits. CD18 is expressed by all leukocytes. Shown to inhibit homotypic aggregation of PHA blasts. It also blocks binding of rat lymphocytes to purified rat ICAM-1
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
