Anti-Human CLC (Clone 138815)
Pricing & Details
E. coli-Derived Recombinant Human CLC (Accession # Q9UBD9)
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.4 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Indirect ELISA: This antibody can be used in an indirect detection ELISA at 0.5 - 1.0 µg/ml with a suitable second step reagent such as PN:M114. The detection sensitivity of this indirect ELISA for Human CLC is approximately 5 ng/well.
Western Blotting: To detect Human CLC this monoclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. This monoclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:M114 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Human CLC is 1 ng/lane under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Immunohistochemistry: Suitable for use at concentration of 8-25 µg/mL.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Mouse Anti-Human Cardiotrophin-Like Cytokine (CLC) (Clone 138815) recognizes an epitope on Human CLC. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
Cardiotrophin-like cytokine (CLC) also known as novel neurotrophin-1/B cell stimulating factor-3 (NNT-1/BSF-3) is a member of the interleukin (IL)-6 family of cytokines.1 CLC is expressed highly in spleen and peripheral leukocytes2 and is a target-derived factor required for the survival of specific pools of motoneurons.3 CLC shows neuroprotective effects on retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in vivo and might be a treatment option for chronic neurodegenerative eye diseases such as glaucoma.4
