Technical Data
Clathrin, Heavy Chain
Cellular Localization: Cell Membrane and Cytoplasmic

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot 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.
MabIgG18J1021Affinity Purified
100ul-20CBlue IceBovineMouse
Full length native protein (purified) (Cow). Epitope: The epitope recognized by the antibody resides within amino acids 207-264 of bovine CHC.
Purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.
15mM Sodium Azide; 0.01M PBS. pH 7.4
Reacts specifically with the clathrin heavy chain (CHC17), and does not crossreact with the muscle isoform CHC22. It is reported to be non-reactive with native clathrin in immunocytochemistry, and immunoprecipitation (but some staining is seen in Rat1 cells, following 4% paraformaldehyde- 0.5% Triton X-100 fixation). Species Crossreactivity: Crossreacts with Human, Mouse, Rat and bovine. Not yet tested in other species.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
