Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
SDF-1b, SDF 1b, SDF 1beta, SDF 1 beta, SDF -1, SDF, Stromal cell-derived factor 1;DF-1; C-X-C motif chemokine 12; Pre-B cell growth-stimulating factor; PBSF;SDF-1-beta
SDF-1β (stromal cell-derived factor-β), also known as pre-B-cell growth-stimulating factor (PBSF), is a 74-amino acid CXC chemokine originally cloned from a bone marrow stromal cell line. Targeted deletion of SDF-1 gene resulted in defects of B-cell lymphopoiesis and bone marrow myelopoiesis. SDF-1 has been shown to be chemotactic for lymphocytes. In addition, SDF-1 was recently reported to be a ligand for CXCR4 (LESTR/fusin), a co-receptor for HIV-1 entry into T cells. SDF-1 binding to CXCR4 inhibits HIV-1 entry.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) Protein A purified rabbit anti-SDF-1β polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 5 mM EDTA and 0.03% proclin
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). Per researcher’s feedback, the antibody can be used in immunoprecipitation (4-8 µg/ml) and Immunohistochemistry (10-20 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Cross-reactivity to SDF-1β of other species has not been determined.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
