Question

Would anti-MAP2 antibody (Monoclonal, HM-2) MA1057 work on primate WB with dorsolateral prefrontal cortex?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-04-06

Answer

Our lab technicians have not tested anti-MAP2 antibody (Monoclonal, HM-2) MA1057 on primate. You can run a BLAST between primate and the immunogen sequence of anti-MAP2 antibody (Monoclonal, HM-2) MA1057 to see if they may cross-react. If the sequence homology is close, then you can perform a pilot test. Keep in mind that since we have not validated primate samples, this use of the antibody is not covered by our guarantee. However we have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in primate dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in WB, you can get your next antibody for free.

Question

I have a question about product MA1057, anti-MAP2 antibody (Monoclonal, HM-2). I was wondering if it would be possible to conjugate this antibody with biotin. I would need it to be without BSA or sodium azide. I am planning on using a buffer exchange of sodium azide with PBS only. Would there be problems for me to conjugate the antibody and store it in -20 degrees in small aliquots?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-07

Answer

We do not recommend storing this antibody with PBS buffer only in -20 degrees. If you want to store it in -20 degrees it is best to add some cryoprotectant like glycerol. If you want carrier free MA1057 anti-MAP2 antibody (Monoclonal, HM-2), we can provide it to you in a special formula with trehalose and/or glycerol. These molecules will not interfere with conjugation chemistry and provide a good level of protection for the antibody from degradation. Please be sure to specify this in your purchase order.

A. Gonzalez

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-10-30

Answer

It shows on the product datasheet, MA1057 anti-MAP2 antibody (Monoclonal, HM-2) as been validated on WB. It is best to use PFA for fixation because it has better tissue penetration ability. PFA needs to be prepared fresh before use. Long term stored PFA turns into formalin, as the PFA molecules congregate and become formalin.
