Technical Data
DNA, ds
Suitable for use in EIA and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilution determined by the researcher.

Binding Assay:
Supernatant was incubated with 32P-end labeled heat-denatured (ss)DNA or duplex (ds)DNA restriction fragments (20 pmoles nucleotides; 16,000 cpm) followed by precipitation of anti- DNA/DNA complexes with excess rabbit anti-mouse and quantitation of bound (32P) DNA by Chernkov radiation.

Nucleic acids were complexed with solid phase mBSA and incubated with anti-DNA antibody. Radioiodinated protein A binding at the highest antibody quantity tested (either 10ug of purified antibody or a 1:2 culture supernatant dilution) was measured and normalized relative to that determined for the preferred antigen (given a value of 1.0). a) Native calf thymus DNA b) Heat-denatured calf thymus DNA

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 after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
