Sheep antibody to c-FOS (2-17): whole serum


Catalogue No. S-034-100
This product is no longer available. Please see below for our recommended alternative products.
Replaced by S-033-500 IgG
S-045-50 affinity purified
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 100 l
Antigen A synthetic peptide (MFSGFNADYEASSSRC; aa 2-17) conjugated to diphtheria toxoid has been used as the immunogen. The peptide is homologous with the corresponding sequence derived from cFos protein in rat, mouse, hamster and cat.
Other Names c-Fos; Proto-oncogene protein cFOS; cellular oncogene fos; G0/G1 switch regulatory protein 7; FOS; G0S7
Accession FOS_HUMAN
Produced in Sheep
Purity Whole serum
Applications IH: Fixed, frozen sections preferred. Zamboni's fixative works best or PLP fixation; whole serum has higher background in paraffin sections. Key to success with c-Fos is light fixation as antibody needs to penetrate to nucleus for proper staining. This antibody is a whole serum thus background is higher and dilutions range is more limited than for IgG or affinity purified version of Sheep anti-c-Fos.
Not recommended for western blotting applications. Mouse monoclonal antibody M-1752-100 or rabbit polyclonal antibody R-1751-50 are excellent alternatives for western blotting.
Specificity This antiserum shows a high level of specificity for cFOS confirmed by immunohostochemistry.
Cross-reactivity This antiserum is known to react with rat, rabbit and hamster c-Fos.
Blast it If you would like to use this product in another species other than those specified here, or to see the shared identity between the immunogen used here in different speices and/or other molecules, simply copy the immunogen (from the Immunogen field) and paste it HERE and blast/format it. Note that, antisera raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide ie, only one single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule. Regardless, you can always contact us if you need assistance with this.
Form Lyophilised
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 100 l of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20C for a higher stability, and at 4C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months after purchase
