Technical Data
The GCTM-5 monoclonal antibody reacts with a minority sub-population of cells in spontaneously differentiating cultures of pluripotent human embryonic stem cells and embryonal carcinoma. The epitope recognized by GCTM-5 is found on a 50kD protein present on the surface of these cells. Previous studies suggest that GCTM-5 may also prove to be a useful tool for defining cell lineage relationships between putative progenitor populations in embryonic liver and biliary epithelium during tissue repair (Pera M, et al, 2005).

Suitable for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunocytochemistry: 5-20ug/ml
Western Blot: 0.5-2.5ug/ml
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.
