Matreya's monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are directed against the carbohydrate chains of ganglioside and globoside glycolipids. The same carbohydrate moieties are found on many glycoproteins. Several gangliosides have been found to have elevated expressions in tumor cells. Therapeutic treatments are being investigated using antibodies to target these ganglioside-rich cells.1 Matreya's antibodies are ideal for use in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and TLC immunoblotting applications.2 All antibodies are quality tested by actual ELISA and TLC immunoblotting analysis. They contain no preservative and are shipped on dry ice for optimal performance.
