For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 633 is a practical alternative to APC as well as Cy5. Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR made this Alexa Fluor 633 conjugate that can be used in multi-color flow cytometry with instruments equipped with a second red laser or red diode. It is detected in the FL4 detector of the core's upgraded 2-laser FACScans. Like other Alexa Fluor dyes, the Anti-MEPE exhibits uncommon photo stability, making it an ideal choice for fluorescent microscopy.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Background of the antigen
MEPE is a 525 amino acid extracellular matrix protein. Expressed in osteocytes and brain, MEPE is a regulator of bone metabolism that is thought to mediate mineralization and demineralization within the osteocyte microenvironment. MEPE contains an RGD cell-attachment motif and shares molecular similarities with several dentin-bone extracellular matrix RGD-containing phosphoglycoproteins, including OPN (osteopontin) and DSP (dentin sialophosphoprotein). Via its ability to control bone mineralization, MEPE is associated with various developmental events such as skeletogenesis, bone regeneration and odontogenesis. MEPE is secreted in hypophosphatemic osteomalacia tumors, suggesting a possible role in the pathophysiology of bone-related cancers.
