ARA Antibodies for Research Applications

Anti-human renal cell carcinoma (clone RC38)

           "Binding of RC38 monoclonal antibodies to human renal cell carcinoma"

Hybridoma Clone    Antibody Isotype    Cat. No.
RC38                     Mouse IgG1           ARA38

A mouse was immunized with a renal cell carcinoma homogenate. After fusing the spleen cells from this mouse with myeloma cells, antibody-producing cells were screened on thin sections of various human tissues and selected based on staining pattern.

RC38 stains over 95% of primary renal cell carcinomas and 60% of metastases of renal cell carcinoma and glomerular visceral epithelium and proximal tubules in normal kidney (cytoplasmic). It does not stain epithelial cells of non-renal malignancies.
