Astrocytes are the most plentiful and diverse of the glial cells. It appears that they play an important role in guiding the construction of the nervous system and controlling the chemical and ionic environment of neurons.
- Immunohistology (Formalin/paraffin)(Use Ab at 1-2µg/ml for 30min at RT)
- Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
-THE OPTIMAL DILUTION SHOULD BE DETERMINED THE INDIVIDUAL LAB
Human. Others not tested.
Recommended Positive Control:
200ug/ml antibody purified from the ascites fluid by ammonium sulfate precipitation and prepared in 10mM PBS, pH 7.4, with 0.2% BSA and 0.09% sodium azide. Also available without BSA and azide at 1mg/ml.
Refrigerate at 4°C. Do not freeze.
Material Safety Data:
This product is not licensed or approved for administration to humans or to animals other than the experimental animals. Standard Laboratory Practices should be followed when handling this material. The chemical, physical, and toxicological properties of this material have not been thoroughly investigated. Appropriate measures should be taken to avoid skin and eye contact, inhalation, and ingestion. The material contains 0.09% sodium azide as a preservative. Although the quantity of azide is very small, appropriate care should be taken when handling this material as indicated above. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has issued a bulletin citing the potential explosion hazard due to the reaction of sodium azide with copper, lead, brass, or solder in the plumbing systems. Sodium azide forms hydrazoic acid in acidic conditions and should be discarded in a large volume of running water to avoid deposits forming in metal drainage pipes.
