Tool Details

  • Tool name: Anti-Zebrafish gut absorptive cell epitopes [FIS 4E8/1]
  • Clone: FIS 4E8/1; 2F11
  • Tool type: Antibodies
  • Tool sub-type: Primary antibody
  • Class: Monoclonal
  • Conjugate: Unconjugated
  • Reactivity: Zebrafish
  • Host: Mouse
  • Cancer type: Colorectal
  • Molecular weight of the target: 200 kDa
  • Application: IHC ; IP ; WB
  • Strain: Balb/c
  • Description: This antibody is not reactive with goblet cells; thus 4E8 can be used as a marker for brush border cells.
  • Immunogen: Lysate of zebrafish intestines
  • Isotype: IgG1
  • Research area: Cell Cycle; Cell Type or Organelle Marker; Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction; Developmental Biology; Epigenetics & Nuclear Signalling; Epitope Tags; Stem Cell Biology
  • Myeloma used: Sp2/0-Ag14

  • For Research Use Only

Target Details

  • Target: Zebrafish gut absorptive cell epitopes
  • Target molecular weight: 200 kDa
  • Target background: The transparency of the juvenile zebrafish and its genetic advantages make it an attractive model for the study of intestinal differentiation and renewal. This antibody labels the brush border / glycocalyxof intestinal absorptive cells (apical ends of microvilli).

Application Details

  • Application: IHC ; IP ; WB


  • Format: Liquid
  • Concentration: 1 mg/ml
  • Storage buffer: PBS with 0.02% azide
  • Storage conditions: -15°C to -25°C
  • Shipping conditions: Shipping at 4°C
