This biosimilar antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added.
Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates.
To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of Leinco’s recombinant biosimilar antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade biosimilar antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
Research Use Only (RUO). Non-Therapeutic.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
FC The suggested concentration for Natalizumab biosimilar antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is ≤ 0.25 μg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 μl. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
This non-therapeutic biosimilar antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Natalizumab. Natalizumab binds to the alpha 4 subunit of α4β1 and α4β7 integrins. This product is for research use only.
CD49D is a subunit of the integrin VLA-4, which is expressed on the cell surfaces of stem cells, progenitor cells, T and B cells, monocytes, natural killer cells, eosinophils, and neutrophils.
Natalizumab is characterized as a disease-modifying therapy for multiple sclerosis (a disease of the central nervous system (CNS)), and inflammatory bowel disease. It works by inhibiting the migration of leukocytes to inflammation sites. The VCAM-1 and α4β1-integrin interaction is necessary for leukocyte adhesion, firm attachment, and transmigration across the blood-brain barrier into the CNS. Natalizumab, a recombinant, humanized antibody, binds to α4β1 -integrin and blocks its interaction with VCAM-1. Hence, leukocyte migration into brain tissue is inhibited, thereby reducing inflammation and preventing the formation of multiple sclerosis lesions.1 Inflammation in the gut pertaining to inflammatory bowel disease can be controlled in a similar fashion. Blocking α4β7-integrin with a humanized, monoclonal antibody, specific to the α4β7 heterodimer inhibits the migration of leukocytes into the inflamed intestinal tissue, thus, reducing inflammation in the gut.2 This cost-effective, research-grade Anti-Human CD49D (Natalizumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Natalizumab making it ideal for research projects.
