Human Mouse Rat
Integrin Alpha M (also known as MAC-1 and CD11b) is a 1142 amino acid protein expressed in various antigen-presenting cells of the immune system, including microglial cells of the central nervous system. This is the same protein that is recognized by the Ox-42 mouse monoclonal antibody.
Hens were immunized with a Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH)-conjugate of a synthetic peptide corresponding to a region near the center of the extracellular domain of this single-membrane pass gene product). After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column to which the same peptide was attached. Finally, the antibody concentration was adjusted to 100 ug/ml and filter-sterilized.

The following quality control assay is performed on each new lot of this antibody to ensure it meets designated performance requirements.
Antibodies were analyzed by immunohistochemistry (at a concentration of 3 ug/ml) using fluorescein-labeled goat anti-chicken IgY (1:500 dilution, Aves Labs Cat.# F-1005) or HRP-labeled goat anti-chicken IgY (1:2000 dilution, Aves Labs, Cat.# H-1004) as the secondary reagent.
