Cat. No.
ABS 005-16
Product name
Anti-L-Ficolin (human)
Description

Mouse monoclonal antibody

Specificity

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).

Application 1

ELISA

ABS 005-16 is especially well suited as capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA in combination with ABS 005-19. Furthermore, in ELISA, ABS 005-16 reacts with recombinant L-Ficolin coated directly into the microtiter well (1).
Application 2

WB
ABS 005-16 can be used in Western blotting.
