DNP-KLH antibodies are used for detecting DNP-labeled molecules. Fluorescent and biotinylated anti-DNP-KLH conjugates can serve as second-step reagents for signal amplification in protein and nucleic acid detection systems, including in situ hybridization studies employing DNP-modified DNA probes. Because anti-DNP antibody binds well to DAMP (D-1552), an acidotropic reagent that can penetrate cell membranes, anti-DNP-KLH antibodies can also be used with DAMP for immunochemical localization of intracellular compartments with low pH. DNP-KLH antibodies may recognize compounds with a trinitrophenyl group, allowing the isolation of cell-surface molecules of human melanoma cells that have been labeled with trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS).
