Clone PLPC1 used to detect mouse myelin binding via Flow Cytometry

Incubation of mouse myelin with mAb against myelin components. The binding is visualized by incubating the mAb-myelin with fluorescent labelled conjugates. The fluorescence intensity (FL2) of the myelin was measured using FACScan flow Cytometry. The data are presented as the geo-mean of fluorescence of one representative experiment (n=4).
