Specific for Hiwi
Hiwi is a member of the Piwi (P-element induced wimpy testis) protein family. Hiwi is specifically expressed in germline cells such as spermatocytes and round spermatids during spermatogenesis. Hiwi is also expressed in CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors, but not in CD34- hematopoietic cells, suggesting a role for this gene in the maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells.
ABfinity™ antibody characteristics include:
- Validation in Western blot and indirect ELISA
- Superior lot-to-lot consistency
- Extremely high specificity and sensitivity
- Recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody
ABfinity™ antibodies are produced by transfection of mammaliancells with heavy and light chain antibody cDNAs. This provides you withthe highest consistency between lots, eliminating the need torevalidate your assays for each lot.
High Specificity Means More Reliable Data
The proprietary recombinant technology employed in the production ofABfinity™ antibodies means you are assured of the greatest degreeof reliability. Staining of nonspecific proteins is virtuallyeliminated while very high sensitivity is achieved. Life Technologies scientists havevalidated this antibody for Western blotting.
High Sensitivity Lets You Detect Low Levels of Target Protein
ABfinity™ antibodies demonstrate much higher sensitivity thanordinary antibodies. Proteins expressed in low levels can be detectedwith high specificity allowing you to use less of your precious samplesthan with ordinary antibodies.
Recombinant Rabbit IgG—Use Like Any Other IgG Antibody
As with traditional IgG antibodies, gel electrophoresis ofABfinity™ antibodies produces a 150 kDa band under non-reducingconditions and 50 kDa and 25 kDa bands under reducing conditions.
