CD20 (L26), B Cells, human


Catalogue number: CD20-5

CloneL26
IsotypeIgG2a
Units5 ml
HostMouse
Application IHC(C
P)
Background
This antibody reacts extremely well with B cell lymphoma, in rare cases also T cell lymphoma may be stained. In Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Reed Sternberg Cells will be stained. CD20 is a non-glycosylated membrane protein with a molecular mass of 33 kDa, which is typical for resting B cells. B cell activation leads to higher molecular isoforms of the protein, which will also be detected by the antibody L26. The antigen is absent from plasma cells (CD138+). Human CD20cy on peripheral and lymphoidal B-cells, germ center of lymph knots..

Positive Control
Lymph nodes, Tonsil

Pre-Treatment
Improvement of staining with Unmasking Fluid G (Art. No. DE007) or Unmasking Fluid C (Art. No. DE000)

Immunogen
B-Cells from human Tonsils

Purification Method
Antibody solution in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 50 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art. No. PU002, if further dilution is required.

Working Concentration
(RTU) neat

Incubation Time
60 min at RT

Secondary Reagents
We recommend the use of BIOLOGO's Universal Staining System DAB (Art. No. DA005) or AEC (Art.-No. AE005).

Caution
*These antibodies are intended for in vitro research use only. They must not be used for clinical diagnostics and not for in vivo experiments in humans or animals. ** The preservative sodium azide is known to be poisonous and potentially hazardous to health. It should be handled only by trained staff. Despite of the product's low azide concentration it must be handled with care. Dispose according to regional rules!
