A monoclonal antibody against hexahistidine (alone) is available from 
Dianova Gmbh, Postfach 30 1250, 20305 Hamburg (FAX 040 3221 90). We have 
used it successfully for the detection of yeast mitochondrial proteins 
tagged at their C-terminus with hexahistidine. Our work with using this 
antisera is scheduled to appear in Analytical Biochemistry vol. 238, No. 
1, 1996 pp.14-18.
