The monoclonal antibody 7G1 recognizes human M-ficolin, also known as ficolin-1. Ficolins are a family of pattern recognition molecules containing both a collagen-like domain and a fibrinogen-like domain that are capable of activating the complement system, through association with MASPs, on the surface of microorganisms. In human, three Ficolins are known: M-Ficolin, L- Ficolin (Ficolin-2), and H-Ficolin (Ficolin-3). M-Ficolin, is mainly expressed by- monocytes, granulocytes and- lung cells and is present locally in areas of inflammation. However, it was recently also found in serum suggesting that M-Ficolin also has a role in systemic immunity like L- and H-Ficolin. Functional analysis of M-Ficolin has demonstrated that it’s ligand is sialic acid present on bacteria since binding was abolished by prior treatment of the bacteria with sialidase. Furthermore, it was shown that M-ficolin facilitates the uptake of E. coli- by a leukemic monocyte lymphoma cell line, suggesting that it functions as a phagocytic receptor on the surface of circulating monocytes. Low cord blood concentration of M-ficolin has been- associated with higher necrotizing enterocolitis-associated fatality and two identified SNPs in the M-ficolin gene are associated with the development of rheumatoid arthritis. The monoclonal antibody 7G1 is suitable for use in immunoassays and western blotting. –

Flow cytometry, Immuno assays, Western blot

For Immuno assays and Western blotting, dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:50. For functional studies, in vitro dilutions have to be optimized in user's experimental setting.

  • New Human Complement Pathway Assays
    We are very proud of our newly developed human classical and alternative complement pathway assays. They are produced in response to a growing demand for quantitative investigation of complement inhibitors or regulators at lower sample dilutions. This development aims to address the issue of false negative results, enabling more accurate and reliable analysis of complement… Read more: New Human Complement Pathway Assays
  • Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
    Our colleague Erik Toonen shared his experience on how to analyze complement at the Complement-based Drug Development Summit in Boston in September 11-13th, 2023. He showed valuable insights on analyzing complements. For accurate complement analysis, it is important that not only the correct technique is used but also that pre-analytical sample handling is performed in… Read more: Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
  • NEW Human C3d ELISA
    We are happy to introduce our new ELISA (cat.# HK3017) designed to detect human C3d. What sets this assay apart is its utilization of a distinctive neo-epitope capture antibody that selectively targets a specific C3d region of the alpha chain, which is not available in other C3 variants. This way it specifically distinguishes C3d from native C3… Read more: NEW Human C3d ELISA
