Renal Specific Antibodies
This database is intended to assist investigators in the use of renal specific immunohistochemical tools that are currently available. It will be updated as soon as new information becomes available, thereby providing timely information on immunohistochemical reagents and staining protocols in the kidney. The database is also intended to contain valuable information that is not easily found otherwise, including information on antibody specificity, tips about tissue preparation and staining protocols along with representative IHC images where these are available.
Antibodies are listed below in tabular form in alphabetical order according to antigen with links to more detailed information on sources, cell specificity and tips on tissue preparation and staining protocols in downstream pages.
