|Other Names||CD59 glycoprotein, 1F5 antigen, 20 kDa homologous restriction factor, HRF-20, HRF20, MAC-inhibitory protein, MAC-IP, MEM43 antigen, Membrane attack complex inhibition factor, MACIF, Membrane inhibitor of reactive lysis, MIRL, Protectin, CD59, CD59, MIC11, MIN1, MIN2, MIN3, MSK21|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD59 antibody, clone MEM-43 recognizes CD59, a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored membrane protein also known as membrane attack complex inhibition factor. CD59 blocks the formation of the complement membrane attack complex (MAC) by binding of C8a and C9. CD59 is found on all types of leucocytes including platelets and is also expressed on many non-haematopoietic cells. The epitope recognized by Mouse anti-Human CD59 antibody, clone MEM-43 is lost after reduction therefore, non-reducing conditions are required for western blotting techniques.|
|Preservative & Stabilisers||0.09% Sodium Azide|
|Storage||Store at +4℃ or at -20 ℃.|
|Precautions||Anti-Human CD59 Antibody, clone MEM-43 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
