My boss were satisfied with the WB result of your anti-CD79a antibody. However we have observed positive staining in tonsil cell membrane using this antibody. Is that expected? Could you tell me where is CD79A supposed to be expressed?

From what I have seen in literature, tonsil does express CD79A. Generally CD79A expresses in cell membrane. Regarding which tissues have CD79A expression, here are a few articles citing expression in various tissues:
Small intestine, Pubmed ID: 7514267
Tonsil, Pubmed ID: 1534761

We are currently using anti-CD79a antibody PB9168 for human tissue, and we are happy with the WB results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, rat. Is it true that the antibody can work on goat tissues as well?

C. Li

Asked: 2013-10-11


The anti-CD79a antibody (PB9168) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with goat tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in goat you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.

We ordered your anti-CD79a antibody for IHC-P on small intestine in a previous experiment. I am using human, and I plan to use the antibody for WB next. I am looking for examining small intestine as well as adrenal gland in our next experiment. Could you please give me some suggestion on which antibody would work the best for WB?

P. Johnson

Verified customer

Asked: 2013-08-27


I looked at the website and datasheets of our anti-CD79a antibody and it appears that PB9168 has been validated on human in both IHC-P and WB. Thus PB9168 should work for your application. Our Boster satisfaction guarantee will cover this product for WB in human even if the specific tissue type has not been validated. We do have a comprehensive range of products for WB detection and you can check out our website to find out more information about them.
