Technical Data
Lipid A
LPS is chemically composed of a lipid part, lipid A, which is responsible for the endotoxic activities of LPS, and a heteropolysaccharide which generally consists of an oligosaccharide, termed the core region, and, in some bacterial families, of the so-called O chain, composed of repeating oligosaccharide units.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunoassays. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 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.

As reported
Synthetic Lipid A.
Culture medium with a low endotoxin level, 0.02% sodium azide.
Recognizes the hydrophilic backbone of free lipid A. This antibody only reacts with lipid A not covalent bound to LPS.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
