HESCA-1 (Human Embryonic Stem Cell Antigen-1)
Description:
The evolution of our understanding of pluripotent and adult stem cell biology requires specific research tools to permit the characterization, isolation, and expansion of stem cells. HESCA-1 is the first in a series of novel stem cell antibodies produced to provide scientists with those needed tools. HESCA-1 recognizes a newly discovered 200kD cell surface protein that has been shown to be expressed in pluripotent human embryonic stem cell (hESC) populations.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry and Flow cytometry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
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.
