Detection of A2B5 in RAW 264.7 Mouse Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. NTera‑2 human testicular embryonic carcinoma cell line either treated with 10 μM retinoic acid for 4 days (filled histogram) or untreated (open histogram) was stained with Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat/Chicken A2B5 Biotinylated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM1416), followed by Streptavidin-Allophycocyanin (Catalog # F0050).

R&D Systems personnel manually curate a database that contains references using R&D Systems products.
The data collected includes not only links to publications in PubMed,
but also provides information about sample types, species, and experimental conditions.
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.
