This product recognizes human myeloperoxidase (MPO). MPO is an important component of azurophilic granules in neutrophils, being involved in microbicidal processes. The protein is a multimer of 2 heavy chains (55kD) and two light chains (15kD), the heavy chains being linked by a disulphide bond. This antibody recognizes native MPO in Western blots, and the heavy chain following boiling of the sample. The antibody also recognizes recombinant MPO in Western blots and weakly in ELISA.
This product is recommended for use in Western blotting.
The antibody may be of value in the study of myeloid cells and myeloid leukaemias by flow cytometry following cell permeablisation.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
This product should be stored undiluted.
Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. 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.
