We've recently obtained a monoclonal anti-H6 antibody from BAbCO (Berkeley
Antibody Company) and found that it reacts with a pET-15b fusion protein in
slot blots. We only have very limited experience so far, but it gave strong
signals at 1/1000, less at 1/4000, and only a relatively weak signal at
1/16,000 (using an alkaline p'tase-conjugated goat anti-mouse antibody and
CDP-Star chemiluminescence for detection). I don't know the sensitivity as of
yet, but it is probably in the low nanogram range.
