Mouse Anti Human Monoclonal.
PSMA is a cancer antigen that is widely expressed as a noncovalent homodimer on the surface of prostate cancer cells, rather than on normal cells, therefore it is an interesting target to image prostate tissues when being used with radioactive antibodies. PSMA is expressed on the surface of novel blood vessels that nourish a broad range of other solid tumors. PSMA is a type II membrane protein with folate hydrolase activity produced by prostatic epithelium. PSMA expression is found in extraprostatic tissues, including small bowel and brain.
Anti-human PSMA mAb is derived from hybridization of mouse FO myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with recombinant human PSMA amino acids 117-351 purified from E. coli.
Mouse IgG1 heavy chain and κ light chain.
PSMA antibody was purified from mouse ascitic fluids by protein-G affinity chromatography.
1mg/ml containing PBS, pH-7.4, 0.02% Sodium Azide & 10% Glycerol.
For periods up to 1 month store at 4°C, for longer periods of time, store at -20°C. Prevent freeze thaw cycles.
Stability / Shelf Life
12 months at -20°C. 1 month at 4°C.
PSMA antibody has been tested by ELISA, Western blot analysis, ICC/IF and Flow cytometry to assure specificity and reactivity. Since application varies, however, each investigation should be titrated by the reagent to obtain optimal results. Recommended dilution range for Western blot analysis is 1:1,000~1:2000, ICC/IF is 1:100 and Flow cytometry is 1:200.
