Immunofluorescent analysis of Syndecan-2 in MCF-7 cells using a Syndecan-2 recombinant rabbit oligoclonal antibody (Product # 710183) followed by detection using an Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) (Image A). Nuclei were stained using DAPI (Image B) and actin stained with Alexa Fluor 594 phalloidin (red) (image C). Image D is a composite image showing membrane localization of syndecan-2.

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
Syndecans are heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) that are involved in cell adhesion, tissue morphogenesis, differentiation, and act as low affinity co-receptors of soluble growth factors. It is involved in the mitogenic activity and signaling of Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony-stimulating factor in osteoblasts, and has been shown to have a regulatory role in matrix assembly. Syndecan-2 is expressed at epithelial-mesenchymal interfaces, and prechondrogenic and preosteogenic mesenchymal condensations, which are areas of high morphogenetic activity.
