Immunohistochemistry / IHC Antibody-Mouse monoclonal antibody

Background

Immunohistochemistry is the localization of antigens or proteins in tissue sections by the use of labeled antibodies as specific reagents through antigen-antibodyinteractions. Immunohistochemical antibody is widely used in the diagnosis of abnormal cells such as those found in cancerous tumors. Immunohistochemical antibody is also widely used in basic research to understand the distribution and localization of biomarkers and differentially expressed proteins in different parts of a biological tissue. Mouse monoclonal antibodies are produced by one type of immune cell and are all clones of a single parent cell. Monoclonal antibodies have monovalent affinity, in that they bind to the same epitope. Currently, Mouse monoclonal antibody technology is so valuable, not only can antibodies be used to protect against disease, they can also help to detect the presence of drugs, viral and bacterial products, and other unusual or abnormal substances in the blood. This has become an important tool in biochemistry, molecular biology and medicine.
