Long descriptionLysozyme (LZ) is a cationic antimicrobial peptide of 14 kDa. Lysozyme is stored in primary but predominantly in specific (secondary) granules of neutrophils. It cleaves peptidoglycan constituents of the bacterial cell wall and can bind LPS. The epitope recognized by antibody LZ-2 is expressed by virtually all myeloid cells including normal and malignant granulocytes and monocytes. In normal myelopoiesis LZ can first be detected at the myeloblast stage where it appears somewhat later than MPO expression. Lactoferrin (LF) is an iron-binding protein with bactericidal and bacteriostatic activity, which is stored within the secondary granules of granulocytes. LF expression is restricted to the post-mitotic maturation compartment of the granulocytic lineage, starting from the myelocyte stage. Normal and malignant myeloblasts are LF negative. The combined staining for Lysozyme and Lactoferrin allows the distinction between mature and immature myelomonocytic cells. The LZ/LF COMBI-IC reagent permits the identification and enumeration of myeloid cells in normal and malignant human blood and bone marrow samples using flow cytometry. Results must be put within the context of other diagnostic tests as well as the clinical history of the patient by a certified professional before final interpretation. Analyses performed with this antibody should be paralleled by positive and negative controls.

Antibody's specificityThe anti-Lysozyme Antibody (clone LZ-2) reacts with intracellular human lysozyme/muramidase expressed by virtually all myelomonocytic cells, macrophages and their precursors. The LF mAb (clone 4C5) recognizes lactoferrin stored within secondary granules of postmitotic granulocyte-commited cells. In this COMBI-IC Reagent antibody LZ-2 is conjugated to FITC, antibody 4C5 is conjugated to Phycoeythrin (PE). The sensitivity y of LZ/LF mAb is determined by staining well-defined blood samples from representative donors with serial-fold mAbdilutions to obtain a titration curve that allows relating the mAb concentration to the percentage of stained cells and geometric MFI (mean fluorescence intensity). For this purpose, a mAb-concentration range is selected to include both the saturation point (i.e. the mAb dilution expected to bind all epitopes on the target cell) and the detection threshold (i.e. the mAb dilutionexpected to represent the least amount of mAb needed to detect an identical percentage of cells). In practice, 50 µl of leukocytes containing 10^7 cells/ml are stained with 20µl mAb of various dilutions to obtain a titration curve and to identify the saturation point and detection threshold. The final concentration of the product is then adjusted to be at least 3-fold above the detection threshold. In addition and to control lot-to-lot variation, the given lot is compared and adjusted to fluorescence standards with defined intensity.

Antibody's suited forPermeabilization and Staining Procedure - In combination with our Permeabilization Kit FIX&PERM (Cat. No. GAS-002) intracellular Lysozyme and Lactoferrin can be easily stained in cell suspensions. - For each sample to be analyzed add 50 µl of whole blood, bone marrow or mononuclear cell suspension in a 5ml tube - Add 100 µl of Reagent A (Fixation Medium, stored and used at room temperature) - Incubate for 15 minutes at room temperature - Add 5ml phosphate buffered saline and centrifuge cells for 5 minutes at 300 g - Remove supernatant and add to cell pellet 100 µl Reagent B (Permeabilization Medium) and 20 µl of the LZ/LF COMBI-IC monoclonal antibody conjugate - Vortex at low speed for 1-2 seconds - Incubate for 15 minutes at room temperature - Wash cells with phosphate buffered saline as described above - Remove supernatant and resuspend cells in sheath fluid for immediate analysis or resuspend cells in 0.5 ml 1.0 % formaldehyde and store them at 2-8°C in the dark. Analyze fixed cells within 24 hours.
StorageNordic-MUbio monoclonal antibody reagents contain optimal concentrations of affinity-purified antibody. For stability reasons this monoclonal antibody solution contains sodium azide. These reagents should be stored at 2-8°C (DO NOT FREEZE!) and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Stability of the reagent: Please refer to the expiry date printed onto the vial. The use of the reagent after the expiration date is not recommended.

WarningsFor professional users only. This reagent contains sodium azide. To avoid the development of hazardous conditions, reagents containing azide should be diluted in running water prior to be discarded. Similar to the work with other biological products, proper handling procedures are recommended.
DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
PropertiesThis nordc Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) antibody is currently after some BD antibodies the most commonly used fluorescent dye for FACS. When excited at 488 nanometers, FITC has a green emission that's usually collected at 530 nanometers, the FL1 detector of a FACSCalibur or FACScan. FITC has a high quantum yield (efficiency of energy transfer from absorption to emission fluorescence) and approximately half of the absorbed photons are emitted as fluorescent light. For fluorescent microscopy applications, the 1 FITC is seldom used as it photo bleaches rather quickly though in flow cytometry applications, its photo bleaching effects are not observed due to a very brief interaction at the laser intercept. nordc FITC is highly sensitive to pH extremes.

TestMouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
