Technical Data
Myelin Basic Protein, aa36-50 (MBP)
Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen
Western Blot: Reported
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Spleen cells from immunized outbred rats were fused with cells of the mouse NSO myeloma cell line.

Recommended Secondary Reagents:
F(ab')2 rabbit anti-rat IgG HRP

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, 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.

Bovine myelin basic protein aa36-50
Tissue culture supernatant
Supplied as a liquid in 0.09% sodium azide before the addition of glycerol to 40%.
Recognizes myelin basic protein, recognizing a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 36-50, as strongly as intact human MBP. Species Crossreactivity: Most mammalian species, but weak with rabbit. Not tested on mouse or rat.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
