We continue to release antibodies to Cas9, the key enzyme in the CRISPR gene editing system. These are RPCA-Cas9-SA and CPCA-Cas9-SA. These polyclonal antibodies recognize the Cas9 protein from Staphylococcus aureus, which is considerably smaller than the Streptococcus pyogenes derived … Continue reading

We release three new antibodies to 2′-3′-cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (CNP), a major protein of oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system. Such antibodies are therefore excellent markers of oligodendrocytes, and, in the peripheral nervous system, Schwann cells. There are two mouse … Continue reading
