MRP14 Antibody Staining Protocol for Immunohistochemistry


Description: MRP14 (S100A9, Calgranulin B, Heavy Chain of L-1) clone S36.48 identifies the Ca2+ -binding 14kD subunit of the inflammatory L-1 protein complex, also called S100A9 or Calgranulin B. It is useful for the characterization of circulating granulocytes or inflammatory infiltrates of the myelo-monocytic lineage which express MRP14 differently depending on the inflammatory status of the disease.

Additional Information:
Tissue Type: CAPAN-1 cell, human lung cancer tissue.
Fixation: Formalin fixed paraffin sections
Positive Control: CAPAN-1 cell, human lung cancer tissue.
