6xHIS or His-tag is a commonly used recombinant tag that consists of 6 sequential histidine residues placed at the amino or carboxy terminus of a targeted sequence. 6xHis is useful for purification of proteins or visualization by western blot or immunocytochemistry.
Purified by Protein A chromatography
Identified as off-target mAb in screen for anti-ProtocadherinGammaA3 Neuromabs (immunogen was 6xHis fusion protein amino acids 720-804, variable portion of cytoplasmic C-terminus, of mouse ProtocadherinGammaA3). Target identified as 6xHis by ELISA, immunofluorescence and immunoblot against other 6xHis-tagged fusion proteins.
Aliquot and store at ≤ -20°C for long term storage. For short term storage, store at 2-8°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the vial prior to removing the cap.
Produced by in vitro bioreactor culture of hybridoma line followed by Protein A affinity chromatography and conjugation of purified mAb. Purified mAbs are >90% specific antibody.

No cross-reactivity reported
Each new lot of antibody is quality control tested on cells overexpressing target protein and confirmed to give the expected staining pattern.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
