Cat.No. GAU 008-01
Mouse monoclonal antibody
GAU 008-01 is specific for complement factor D in human serum and plasma (1).
Human factor D (1)
Epitope specificity differs from that of GAU 010-04 (1).
Available in 200 µL and 1 mL size.1 mg/mL +/- 15%. See Certificate of Analysis for details.
Complement factor D is a serine protease of the alternative pathway of complement activation. The protein is a single chain polypeptide with a molecular mass of 25 kDa. Factor D cleaves factor B bound to C3b, generating the alternative pathway C3 convertase C3bBb and releasing the Ba fragment.
GAU 008-01 is used as a biotinylated detection antibody in sandwich ELISA with a GAU 010-04 capture (1).

GAU 008-01 can be used for Western blotting following SDS-PAGE under non-reducing conditions (1, 2).
