Cat.No. ABS 005-19
Mouse monoclonal antibody
ABS 005-19 reacts specifically with L-Ficolin. No cross reactivity is seen with M-Ficolin (Ficolin-1) and H-Ficolin (Ficolin-3).
Purified procaryot expressed recombinant human L-Ficolin and full-length L-Ficolin (Ficolin-2) protein
Available in 200 µL and 1 mL size.1 mg/mL +/- 15%. See Certificate of Analysis for details.
L-Ficolin (Ficolin-2) is an innate immunity pattern recognition molecule found in human serum. L-Ficolin binds to distinct pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP), such as carbohydrates (GlcNAc), lipoteichoic acid and acetylated groups thereby facilitating phagocytosis and activation of complement through the lectin route using the same serine proteases as mannose-binding lectin (MBL) named MASP ((MBL)-associated serine protease) (1).
ABS 005-19 is especially well suited as detecting antibody in a sandwich ELISA in combination with ABS 005-16 (1). Furthermore, in ELISA, ABS 005-19 reacts with recombinant L-Ficolin coated directly into the microtiter well.
ABS 005-19 can be used in immunoprecipitation (4).
