The antibody reacts with the Lectin Domain of E-selectin, CD62-e, formerly designated Endothelial Leucocyte Adhesion Molecule-1 (ELAM-1). The antibody reacts with human endothelial cells activated with TNF, IL-1 or endotoxin. The antibody was found to react also with cells transfected with the ELAM-1 gene. The antibody inhibits the adhesion of granulocytes both neutrophilic and eosinophilic.
Frozen sections, Immuno assays, Western blot
For immunohistology 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 1:10. For selection of the most useful dilution in a given situation a test staining with cells or tissue known to express the antigen should be performed. To this end a small fresh skin biopsy can be incubated for 4 hours with TNF-alpha (1 ng/ml), IL-1 (100 U/ml) or LPS (1 µg/ml) in tissue culture medium at 37 °C.
