This monoclonal 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 Purified Functional PLATINUM™ antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade preclinical 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.

FC The suggested concentration for this 1A8 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.
Clone 1A8 recognizes an epitope on mouse Ly6G. Clone 1A8 does not cross react with Ly6C.
Ly6G is expressed by neutrophils.
Ly6G antibody, clone 1A8, recognizes lymphocyte antigen 6 complex locus G6D (Ly6G; also called Gr-1), a 21-25 kDa glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein1. Ly6G belongs to the lymphocyte antigen-6 (Ly6)/urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) superfamily, characterized by a Ly6/uPAR (LU) domain-containing a three-fingered structural motif stabilized by disulfide bonds2. Ly6G is expressed by murine neutrophils regardless of location and activation1,4,5. Eosinophils may also express low levels of Ly6G5. There is no human ortholog for Ly6G; however, a structurally related L76/uPAR protein, CD177 (also known as HNA-2a, NB1, or PRV-1) is expressed in human neutrophils and is implicated in neutropenia6. Although the exact function and ligand of Ly6G remain unknown, Ly6G ligation may impair neutrophil migration to sites of inflammation via a β2-integrin-dependent mechanism7.
