If you buy Antibodies supplied by MBS Monoclonals they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.

Species reactivity

Mouse (Mus musculus); Due to limited knowledge and inability for testing each and every species, the reactivity of the antibody may extend to other species which are not listed hereby.


This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.This is against a protein of mus musculus directed antibody.


Rats are used to make rat monoclonal anti mouse antibodies. There are less rat- than mouse clones however. Rats genes from rodents of the genus Rattus norvegicus are often studied in vivo as a model of human genes in Sprague-Dawley or Wistar rats.


Mouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.

Storage and shipping

Store the antibody at +4 degrees Celsius for short-term storage and at -20 degrees Celsius for long-term.Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. the antibody should be stored undiluted. Repeated freeze - thaw cycles may denature the peptide chains of the antibody and therefore should be maximally avoided. If there is a precipitate in the vial we recommend you to briefly microcentrifugate it prior to use. Shelf Life: 18 months from date of dispatch.

Specificity and cross-reactivity

CD254 This item recognises CD254, otherwise known as Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL) or TNF-related activation-induced cytokine (TRANCE), a member of the tumour necrosis factor ligand superfamily. CD254 is a cytokine that binds osteoprotegerin or RANK and plays an important role in bone metabolism, where it acts as an osteoclast differentiation and activation factor. Overproduction of CD254 is implicated in a range of degenerative bone diseases. _x000D__x000D_It is also expressed by T helper cells and augments the ability of dendritic cells to stimulate naïve T cell proliferation. It may play a role in regulating interactions between T cells and dendritic cells and in the regulation of T cell-dependent immune responses. _x000D__x000D_Clone IK22/5 blocks ligand binding.; Since it is not possible to test each and every species our knowledge on the corss reactivity of the antibodies is limited. This particular antibody might cross react with speacies outside of the listed ones.
