Fibronectin is a multifunctional glycoprotein present in connective tissues and plasma. Fibronectin mediates cell adhesion and migration during embryonic development, wound healing in adult tissues. A soluble form of fibronectin is present in blood plasma and other body fluids such as synovial and tear fluids. Plasma fibronectin is a potent opsonizing factor promoting phagocytosis of tissues and collagen debris by macrophages.
|Buffer:||The antibody is purified on ProteinA-Sepharose and it is desolved in PBS with 0.05% sodium azide as preservative. At this concentration azide will be toxic to most cellular systems. If necessary it can be removed through dialysis against an appropriate buffer prior to use.|
|Storage:||The antibody can be stored frozen at -20°C.|
