|Purification||Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on Protein G|
|Immunogen||Peripheral blood mononuclear cells.|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Other Names||Integrin beta-2, Cell surface adhesion glycoproteins LFA-1/CR3/p150, 95 subunit beta, Complement receptor C3 subunit beta, CD18, ITGB2, CD18, MFI7|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD18 (Activation Epitope) antibody, clone MEM-148 recognizes an epitope on the human CD18 molecule that is hidden in the CD11/CD18 heterodimer on resting cells. Clone MEM-148 binds very weakly to resting peripheral blood leukocytes and strongly to all leukocytes upon cellular activation. The epitope recognized by Mouse anti-Human CD18 (Activation Epitope) antibody, clone MEM-148 is also exposed during dissociation of the CD11/CD18 by low pH.|
|Preservative & Stabilisers||0.09% Sodium Azide|
|Storage||Store at +4℃ or at -20 ℃.|
|Precautions||Anti-Human CD18 (Activation Epitope) Antibody, clone MEM-148 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
