Bacillus anthracis Spore Antigen Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog Nos.: 18727 (SA26) and 18728 (SA27).
Size: 200 ug purified antibody in PBS, pH 7.4.
The vegetative form of B. anthracis forms spores when nutrients in the environment, such as amino acids, nucleosides, and glucose, become depleted. These spores can survive for many years and will germinate into the toxin-producing vegetative form of B. anthracis when they are exposed to a nutrient-rich environment.
Antigen: Detergent extract of B. anthracis spores.
Host Species: Mouse
Antibody Class: IgG2a
Preservative: 0.1% NaN3
These antibodies recognize different epitopes of a 92 kD S-layer protein. They do not cross-react with B. anthracis PA, EF, LF, or vegetative forms. They also do not cross-react with spores or vegetative forms of B. brevis, B. cereus, B. megaterium, B. subtilis, or B. thuringiensis.
Immunoblotting: use at 5 ug/ml.
Sandwich ELISA: use coating antibody (18727) at 5 ug/ml; use detect antibody (18728) at 1 ug/ml.
Dilute in PBS or medium which is identical to that used in the assay system.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
These antibodies are stable for at least one (1) year at -20°C. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
For in vitro investigational use only. Not for use in therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
