General description

ColorWheel® technology is a novel and proprietary method of creating your own antibody and dye combinations for use in flow cytometry. By incubating any ColorWheel® antibody with any ColorWheel® dye, researchers can quickly and simply produce primary conjugated antibodies for use in single color or multicolor flow cytometry analysis. Each ColorWheel® antibody and dye is lyophilized for long long-term storage, allowing for simplicity and flexibility without compromise. ColorWheel® technology requires both ColorWheel® antibody and ColorWheel® dye for Flow Cytometry application.
We are committed to bringing you greener alternative products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Green Chemistry.This product is Preservative-free, lyophilized product for enhanced stability and allow for ambient shipping and thus aligns with "Waste Prevention", "Designing Safer Chemicals" and "Design for Energy Efficiency".

Target description

Neural cell adhesion molecule 1 (UniProt: P13591; also known as N-CAM-1, NCAM-1, CD56) is encoded by the NCAM1 (also known as NCAM) gene (Gene ID: 4684) in human. CD56 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily that is engaged in both so-called homophilic and heterophilic interactions. It is a single-pass type I membrane glycoprotein that is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-19), which is subsequently cleaved off to generate the mature form that contains an extracellular domain (aa 20-718), a transmembrane domain (aa 719-739), and a cytoplasmic domain (aa 740-858). It also contains five Ig-like C2-type domains and two fibronectin type-III domains. CD56 is expressed by neurons, glia, skeletal muscle, and natural killer (NK) cells. It is involved in neuron-neuron adhesion, neurite fasciculation, and outgrowth of neurite. It is considered as the archetypal phenotypic marker for natural killer cells, but is also expressed in many other immune cells, including ab T cells, g T cells, dendritic cells, and monocytes. It is also shown to play a role in the fungus mediated NK cell activation and blocking of CD56 surface receptor reduced fungal mediated NK cell activation and reduced cytokine secretion. (Ref.: Ziegler, S., et al. (2017). Sci. Rep. 7; Article 6138; Van Acker, HH., et al. (2017). Front. Immunol. 8; Article 892).

Physical form

Lyophilized from PBS containing D-Mannitol and Sucrose, normal appearance is a dried pellet. Reconstituted antibody solution is stable and functional as assessed by functional testing. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide.

Reconstitution

1.0 mg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL in PBS. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.

Storage and Stability

Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C. Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial. Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of PBS. Protect from light.
