IHC of Myeloperoxidase on an FFPE Bone Marrow Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use|
|Summary and Explanation||Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a peroxidase enzyme most abundantly present in neutrophil granulocytes. It is a lysosomal protein stored in azurophilic granules of the neutrophil. MPO has a heme pigment, which causes its green color in secretions rich in neutrophils, such as pus and some forms of mucus. Historically, immunohistochemical staining for myeloperoxidase was used in the diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia to demonstrate that the leukemic cells were derived from the myeloid lineage. Myeloperoxidase staining is still important in the diagnosis of Extramedullary Leukemia or Chloroma.
Myeloperoxidase detects granulocytes and monocytes in blood and precursors of granulocytes in the bone marrow. This antibody can detect myeloid cell populations of the bone marrow as well as in other sites.
|Antibody Type||Rabbit Monoclonal||Clone||EP151|
|Presentation||Myeloperoxidase is a rabbit monoclonal antibody derived from cell culture supernatant that is concentrated, dialyzed, filter sterilized and diluted in buffer pH 7.5, containing BSA and sodium azide as a preservative.|
|Note: For concentrated antibodies, please centrifuge prior to use to ensure recovery of all product.|
