Technical Data
Kappa Light Chain (HCAK1, Ig kappa Chain C Region, IGKC, Immunoglobulin kappa Constant Region, Immunoglobulin kappa Light Chain, Kappa 1 Immunoglobulin Light Chain, Km, MGC111575, MGC62011, MGC72072, MGC88770, MGC88771, MGC88809) (Biotin)
Useful in the identification of leukemias, plasmacytomas and certain non-Hodgkins lymphomas. The most common feature of these malignancies is the restricted expression of a single light chain class. Demonstration of clonality in lymphoid infiltrates indicates that the infiltrate is clonal and therefore malignant. Immunoglobulin bearing Kappa light chains are present on about 60% of normal B lymphocytes.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: Neat, Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 10e6 cells in 100ul.
Optimal working dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Spleen cells from immunized PVG RT1c rats were fused with cells of the rat Y3.Ag.1.2.3 myeloma cell line.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 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.
