Long descriptionNCAM / CD56, as a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily of adhesion molecules is characterized by several immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains. The extracellular part of NCAM consists of five of these Ig domains and two fibronectin type III homology regions. NCAM is encoded by a single copy gene composed of 26 exons. However, at least 20-30 distinct isoforms can be generated by alternative splicing and by posttranslational modifications, such as sialylation. During sialylation, polysialic acid (PSA) carbohydrates are attached to the extracellular part of NCAM. Through its extracellular region, NCAM mediates homophilic interactions. In addition, NCAM can also undergo heterophilic interactions by binding extracellular matrix components, such as laminin, or other cell adhesion molecules, such as integrins. NCAM can be found in central and peripheral nerve cells, neuroendocrine tissues and at the surface of NK-cells. Also, NCAM is present in malignancies derived from these tissues and cells.
Antibody come from123A8 is a mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of mouse myeloma cells with cells from a mouse immunized with a membrane preparation of a human small cell lung carcinoma.
Other descriptionEach vial contains 100µg 1mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing 0.09% sodium azide.

Antibody's specificityThe antibody 123A8 is directed against human NCAM/CD56 and reacts with an epitope within the membrane-proximal region of the NCAM molecule. The antibody binds to all NCAM isoforms.
Research interestCancer,Cell adhesion,Neurobiology, CD Markers
ApplicationFlow cytometry, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (frozen), Immunohistochenistry (paraffin), Western blotting, ELISA
Antibody's suited forThe 123A8 antibody is suitable for the detection of human NCAM/CD56 by flow cytometry, immunocytochemistry, ELISA, western blotting and immunoprecipitation. The antibody is also suitable for the detection of human NCAM/CD56 by immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin embedded tissues. Staining of paraffin embedded tissues with 123A8 is possible following heat mediated antigen retrieval of paraffin sections using 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0. Optimal antibody dilutions for the different applications should be determined by titration.
StorageStore at 4°C, or in small aliquots at -20°C.

WarningsThis product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. This product contains sodium azide. To prevent formation of toxic vapors, do not mix with strong acidic solutions. To prevent formation of potentially explosive metallic azides in metal plumbing, always wash into drain with copious quantities of water. This datasheet is as accurate as reasonably achievable, but Nordic-MUbio accepts no liability for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information.
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.
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.
