Immunofluorescent analysis of SSEA4 using anti-SSEA4 monoclonal antibody (Product# MA1-021) shows expression in human teratocarcinoma NCCIT cells (shown in green) but not in negative control HeLa cells. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature. Cells were blocked with 1% Blocker BSA (Product #37525) for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a mouse monoclonal antibody recognizing SSEA4 (Product# MA1-021), at a dilution of 1:50 for at least 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were washed with PBS and incubated with DyLight 488 goat-anti-mouse secondary antibody (Product# 35503) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product# 62249). Images were taken on a Thermo Scientific ArrayScan at 20X magnification.

Product # 35503 has been successfully used in Western blot, IF, ICC, IHC, IP and FACS applications.
Product # 35503 reacts with the heavy chains of mouse IgG and with the light chains common to most mouse immunoglobulins, but does not react against non-immunoglobulin serum proteins. The antibody has been tested by solid-phase adsorbed to ensure minimal cross-reactivity with human, bovine, horse, rabbit, swine, goat, and rat serum proteins. However, this antibody may cross-react with immunoglobulins from other species.
Store product protected from light at 4°C until opened. To extend the shelf-life of this product, add an equal volume of glycerol to make a final concentration of approximately 50% glycerol and store at -20°C. DyLight 488 Amax= 493 nm; Emax= 518 nm. Mole Dye/Mole Protein Ratio is lot-dependent.
Thermo Scientific Anti-Mouse secondary antibodies are affinity-purified antibodies with well-characterized specificity for mouse immunoglobulins and are useful in the detection, sorting or purification of its specified target. Secondary antibodies offer increased versatility enabling users to use many detection systems (e.g. HRP, AP, fluorescence). They can also provide greater sensitivity through signal amplification as multiple secondary antibodies can bind to a single primary antibody. Most commonly, secondary antibodies are generated by immunizing the host animal with a pooled population of immunoglobulins from the target species and can be further purified and modified (i.e. immunoaffinity chromatography, antibody fragmentation, label conjugation, etc.) to generate highly specific reagents.
