CD46 / Membrane Cofactor Protein Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 90004 (clone 3F1) Format: 100ug, Protein A-purified, lyophilized in PBS.
CD46 / Membrane Cofactor Protein is a type I membrane protein and is a regulatory part of the complement system; it has cofactor activity for inactivation of complement components C3b and C4b by serum factor I which protects the host cell from damage by complement. This protein also acts as a receptor for the Edmonston strain of measles virus, human Herpes virus-6 (HHV-6), and type IV pili of pathogenic Neisseria. Of interest is that medulloblastoma (a malignant brain tumor common in childhood) specimens express a high level of CD46.
Antigen: Recombinant human CD46.
Host species: Mouse.
Antibody Class: IgG1.
This antibody recognizes human CD46.
Immunohistochemistry: use at 1- 10ug/ml.
Immunoblotting: use at 0.5-1ug/ml. A band of ~44kDa is detected. Additional bands due to glycosylation of CD46 may be detected.
ELISA: use at 0.1-1ug/ml with human CD46 on the solid phase.
These are recommended concentrations. Enduser should determine optimal concentrations for their applications.
Reconstitute in distilled water.
