ab117491 recognizes the influenza hemagglutinin epitope (YPYDVPDYA) which has been used extensively as a general epitope tag in expression vectors. This antibody recognizes HA epitopes located in the middle of protein sequences as well as at the N- or C-terminus.
Lyophilised:Lyophilized material is stable for up to one year. Reconstititue to 1.0 ml with distilled deionized water, vortex gently and allow vial to sit on ice for 20 minutes. After product has been reconstituted, product should be stored at 2-8°C in the dark and be used within 6 months. Avoid exposure to heat and light. If further dilution of the conjugate is required, use diluted material within one month.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/5000. ab118658-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Human influenza hemagglutinin (HA) is a surface glycoprotein required for the infectivity of the human virus. The HA tag is derived from the HA molecule corresponding to amino acids 98-106 has been extensively used as a general epitope tag in expression vectors. Many recombinant proteins have been engineered to express the HA tag, which does not appear to interfere with the bioactivity or the biodistribution of the recombinant protein. This tag facilitates the detection, isolation, and purification of the proteins.
