  ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Division of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.


ACHE (see 3 clones below)
Mouse anti-Acetylcholinesterase ACHE) Monoclonal ab   (HUMAN/Rabbit/Bovine, GP)

cat# RDI-ACHEXabM   $500.00/vial

Presentation: 200ul of PBS-diluted ascites containing 0.05% sodium azide

Clone: HR2

Isotype: mIgG2b

Immunogen: Purified human cerebellar acetylcholinesterase.

Species  Reactivity: Bovine, Feline, Guinea Pig, Human, Rabbit

Use: detects acetylcholinesterase (AChE) from human, rabbit, guinea pig, bovine and cat tissues. This antibody does not detect butyrylcholinesterase (BChE),

This mab has been successfully used in immunohistochemistry, immunoprecipitation and ELISA procedures. This antibody cannot be used in Western blot to detect AChE. Immunohistochemical staining of AChE in human brain samples yields staining of nerve fibers and terminals

Applications: Immunohistochemistry (Frozen) 1:50

                       Immunoprecipitation Assay dependent

Background: Cholinergic neurotransmission occurs in motor, autonomic and central nervous synapses and requires very rapid inactivation of its transmitter, acetylcholine (ACh). Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) rapidly hydrolyzes ACh to acetate and choline, thereby inactivating it. AChE is found in the neuromuscular junction anchored to the basal lamina which runs between the nerve terminal and muscle membrane. AChE is also found outside the nervous and neuromuscular system in blood, lymph, germ and liver cells suggesting a role for AChE not related to cholinergic transmission. Another less specific cholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), seems to contribute to the regulation of the ACh concentration in the synaptic cleft. .

Mouse anti-Acetylcholinesterase ACHE) Monoclonal ab   RAT/Rabbit/GP)

cat# RDI-ACHERTabM   $500.00/vial

Presentation: 100ul of PBS-diluted ascites containing 0.05% sodium azide

Clone: ZR3

Isotype: mIgG2b

Immunogen: Purified rat brain acetylcholinesterase..

Species Reactivity: Feline, Guinea Pig, Rabbit,Rat

Use: -detects acetylcholinesterase (AChE) from feline, rat, rabbit and guinea pig tissues.

This Mab has been successfully used in immunohistochemistry and immunoprecipitation procedures. This antibody cannot be used in Western blot to detect AChE. Immunohistochemical staining of Ach in rat brain with this Mab results in staining of nerve fibers and terminals. Reacts with both the soluble and membrane-associated AchE

Applications: Immunohistochemistry (Frozen) 1:1000

Mouse anti-Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) Monoclonal ab   BACKORDER MAY 2005

       RDI-ACHEabm-1       $750.00/vial 150ug (0.6ml)


Background: AChE (acetylcholinesterase) is a type B carboxylesterase that rapidly hydrolyzes acetylcholine in neuromuscular junctions and brain cholinergic synapses. In vertebrate muscle, AChEs exist in two broad structural classes, globular and asymmetric. The catalytic subunits of both classes are encoded by a single gene. AChE is assembled into multimeric catalytic subunits consisting of dimers and tetramers. The asymmetric form appears to be anchored to basal lamina components through a disulfide bonded collagen like peptide.The AChE globular form subunits can also associate with the cell membrane through either a disulfide-linked small inserted peptide or through a covalently attached glycophospholipid anchor. Currently, there is no direct evidence that these glycophospholipid-anchored forms exist in the chicken. Three classes of membrane-bound AChEs have been identified;A12, AChE, G2 AChE and G4 AChE. In mammals, the G2 AChE class is found in erythrocytes and is localized in membranes by a glycoinositol phospholipid covalently linked to the C-terminal amino acid of the catalytic subunits. the G4 AChE class is found in the mammalian central nervous system. These tetramers consist of two subunits linked by a direct intersubunit disulfide bond while the other two are disulfide linked to the membrane-binding, non catalytic subunit.
