IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml
This product specifically recognizes an extracellular conformational epitope of CD243, also known as MDR1 (multi-drug resistance protein 1) and Pgp (P-glycoprotein), a transmembrane protein and member of the ABC transporter (ATP-binding cassette) family, which acts as an active efflux pump for a diverse range of lipophillic compounds.
CD243 is expressed at low levels in the cell membrane of peripheral blood leucocytes, and constitutively expressed on the apical plasma membrane of excretory epithelial cells of the kidney, liver, brain and small intestine. CD243 mediates resistance to many chemotherapeutic agents used for tumour suppression and is therefore of special interest to oncologists.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
