Human recom- binant interleukin 1 alpha (hIL-1 ).
Interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1 a) FITC, Monoclonal Antibody should be stored at -20ºC. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles
The Interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1 a) FITC, Monoclonal Antibody is a α- or alpha protein sometimes glycoprotein present in blood.
The Interleukin-1 family (IL-1 family) is a group of 11 cytokines, which plays a central role in the regulation of immune and inflammatory responses to infections or sterile insults. Rec. E. coli interleukin-1 for cell culture or antibody production.
Monoclonals of this antigen are available in different clones. Each murine monoclonal anibody has his own affinity specific for the clone. Mouse monoclonal antibodies are purified protein A or G and can be conjugated to FITC for flow cytometry or FACS and can be of different isotypes.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Exalpha they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.This Exalpha Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) antibody is currently after some BD antibodies the most commonly used fluorescent dye for FACS. When excited at 488 nanometers, FITC has a green emission that's usually collected at 530 nanometers, the FL1 detector of a FACSCalibur or FACScan. FITC has a high quantum yield (efficiency of energy transfer from absorption to emission fluorescence) and approximately half of the absorbed photons are emitted as fluorescent light. For fluorescent microscopy applications, the 1 FITC is seldom used as it photo bleaches rather quickly though in flow cytometry applications, its photo bleaching effects are not observed due to a very brief interaction at the laser intercept. Exalpha FITC is highly sensitive to pH extremes.
