Additional Details : Weight : 0.01000kg
DescriptionDescription: This 5H12 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Autoimmune Regulator (AIRE). This 58-kDa transcription factor is highly expressed within the perinuclear region of mature medullary thymic epithelial cells (mTECs). However, expression of AIRE protein in the periphery remains unclear despite the detection of AIRE mRNA in the lymph node, lymphoid stromal cells, monocytes, and dendritic cells. Studies demonstrate that AIRE is involved in thymocyte development, in particular the regulation of tissue-specific antigen expression during negative selection. Other biological functions for AIRE include chemokine expression and antigen presentation.The 5H12 antibody recognizes mouse AIRE isoforms 1 and 2.Applications Reported: This 5H12 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, immunoprecipitation, western blotting, and immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections.Applications Tested: This 5H12 antibody has been tested by immunohistochemistry on frozen 5-week-old mouse thymus and can be used at less than or equal to 5 ug/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
