Technical Data
C5067-01
Chondroitin 4 Sulfate
Description:
A human melanoma-associated chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan plays a role in stabilizing cell-substratum interactions during early events of melanoma cell spreading on endothelial basement membranes. CSPG4 represents an integral membrane chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan expressed by human malignant melanoma cells.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, RIA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: 1:400-1:3200
RIA: 1:50-1:6400
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:4000 (ECL)
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.

Specificity:
Recognizes both mouse (fetal and adult) and human (fetal and adult) chondroitinase ABC digested cartilage proteoglycans. Chondroitin 4 sulfate disaccharides successfully inhibit the binding of monoclonal antibody to proteoglycans. No reaction with native proteoglycans or with proteoglycans digested with either chondroitinase AC or testicular hyaluronidase. Species Crossreactivity: bovine, sheep, canine and rat
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
