Anti-mouse Ly6G/Ly6C (Gr-1)
The RB6-8C5 monoclonal antibody reacts strongly with mouse Ly6G and weakly with mouse Ly6C previously referred to as GR-1. Ly6G is a 21-25 kDa member of the Ly-6 superfamily of GPI-anchored cell surface proteins with roles in cell signaling and cell adhesion. Ly6G is expressed differentially during development by cells in the myeloid lineage including monocytes macrophages granulocytes and neutrophils. Monocytes typically express Ly6G transiently during development while mature granulocytes and peripheral neutrophils retain expression making Ly6G a good cell surface marker for these populations.The RB6-8C5 antibody has been shown to inhibit the binding of the 1A8 antibody. The 1A8 monoclonal antibody reacts specifically with mouse Ly6G with no reported cross reactivity with Ly6C.
This Antibody Is Useful For:
in vivo depletion of Gr-1+ myeloid cells
ALWAYS specifically formulated for in vivo use and feature:
Ultra-low endotoxin levels
Preservative, stabilizer, and carrier protein-free
Recommended Control and Buffer:
Rat IgG2b isotype control, anti-keyhole limpet hemocyanin
The LTF-2 monoclonal antibody reacts with keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH). Because KLH is not expressed by mammals this antibody is ideal for use as an isotype-matched control for rat IgG2b antibodies in most in vivo and in vitro applications.
InVivoPure pH 7.0 Dilution Buffer
InVivoPure™ dilution buffers are specifically formulated and tested to satisfy the stringent requirements for in vivo applications. They are extremely low in endotoxin, have been screened for murine pathogens, tested in animal models for toxicity and are formulated with respect to buffer composition and pH to satisfy the requirements of Bio X Cell’s antibodies.
