CSI 002-65
Product name
Anti-Thrombospondin 1 (bovine, human)
Description
Mouse monoclonal antibody
Specificity
CSI 002-65 is highly specific for the low-calcium (0.1 mmol/L) conformation of human TSP1. There is no evidence of cross-reactivity with other connective tissue proteins (vitronectin, fibronectin, elastin, collagen, laminin).

Target
Thrombospondin 1 (TSP1) is a multidomain, multifunctional glycoprotein from platelets and certain vascular cells which has been shown to play an important role in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. TSP1 is a calcium-sensitive, disulfide-bonded trimer with a subunit molecular mass of 150 kDa. TSP1 exists in different conformational states depending on the calcium ion concentration used in the purification buffers (1).
Application 1
ELISA
CSI 002-65 can be used in ELISA (1).
Application 2
IHC
CSI 002-65 can be used for immunoprecipitation and for immunostaining of frozen periodate-lysine-paraformaldehyde-fixed sections of bovine and human tissues. CSI 002-65 can also be used to probe for the low-calcium conformation of thrombospondin (1).
Application 3
IP
CSI 002-65 can be used for immunoprecipitation.
