Would you use this antibody in future experiments?


Please explain any problems you had with the antibody and/or
experimental results that Aviva can address in the future.

It does not detect the band at ~115 kDa for Astn2, which I am able to detect with our own home-made antibody.

If the antibody works, do you plan to use it in future experiments
or to publish your data? Why or why not?

Yes if I can verify that it binds to Astn2 specifically
