Antibodies recognising M13 filamentous phage coat proteins are instrumental in the selection and detection of phages expressing specific antibody fragments or peptide sequences at their surface. The monoclonal antibodies manufactured and supplied by Exalpha react with either the pIII (g3p) or pVIII (g8p) proteins of M13 filamentous bacteriophage. All antibodies are available in a purified format. The antibodies are fully validated and are suitable for a wide range of techniques including:

The bifunctional purine biosynthesis protein PURH contains phosphoribosylaminoimidazole carboxamide formyltransferase, also designated AICAR transformylase, IMP cyclohydrolase or Inosinicase. AICAR plays an important role in purine biosynthesis, specifically in the production of nucleotides and IMP. Defects in ATIC, the gene encoding for this protein, can cause AICArebosuria, also designated AICA-ribosiduria, an inborn error in purine biosynthesis that is neurologically cataclysmic. Individuals with AICA-rebosuria accumulate AICA-ribotide, also designated ZMP, and its derivatives in erythrocytes and fibroblasts and also excrete very large amounts of AICA-riboside in the urine. Mental retardation, epilepsy, dysmorphic features and congenital blindness are all symptoms of this disease.
Hybridoma produced by the fusion of splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with a synthetic peptide derived from the human ATIC protein and mouse myeloma Ag8563 cells. Sequence common in frog, fruit fly, rat and mouse.
