About these Antibodies
All antibodies listed on this page were generated by
researchers at the Institute of Neuroscience, University of Oregon
Liu et al., 2003,
Amacher, et al., 2002, and
Trevarrow et al., 1990).
The monoclonal antibodies were generated with BALB/c mice
against adult zebrafish protein, and clones were selected based on the
specific staining patterns obtained with particular clones. The
hybridomas are stored at the Monoclonal Antibody Facility of the UO
under the supervision of
Dr. Mike Marusich.
The Monoclonal Antibody Facility regenerates supernatants and provides them
to the ZIRC upon request.
Many of the antibodies are stored in a medium
containing Sodium Azide. View the
Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for Sodium Azide. All of these
antibodies are stored in media containing fetal bovine serum, USA origin, that
is free of pathogens according to supplier information.
Please note that antibodies should be stored in a
-80C freezer if they arrive frozen. If thawed upon arrival, please keep
antibodies in the refrigerator at 4C. Repeated freezing and thawing should be
Also, current batches of ZIRC antibody may have dilution rates that vary
from the dilution rates found in publications.
