Technical Data
Complement 1s (Complement Component 1 s subcomponent, Basic proline-rich peptide IB-1, C1 esterase, Complement C1s subcomponent precursor)
Activated C1s is a glycosylated single-polypeptide zymogen of 85 kD. Activation of the proenzyme C1s occurs through cleavage by the active form of C1r. The activated protease, activated C1s, consists of a disulfide-linked H chain and a L chain. Activated C1s is a serine protease and its catalytic site is located in the L chain. Activation of the classical C pathway is triggered by activated C1s which cleaves C4 and C2 to form the C3 convertase, C4bC2a. The epitope recognized by the antibody M241 is domain IV and/or V of the gamma-domain of activated C1s. Monoclonal antibody M241 blocks C4 activation and C4 binding to activated C1s. The antibody binds specifically to the active centre of C1s.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin), Immunoassays. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: 1:10
Western Blot: 1:10
Immunohistochemistry: 1:10
Immunoprecipitation: 1:10
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 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.
