This video shows you how to search by clone ID and review the associated clone data in BenchSci's clone page.
Some monoclonal antibodies have an associated clone ID, also called clone number, that defines the original hybridoma cell line that produces a single type of antibody.
Therefore, each antibody with the same clone ID should bind to the same epitope on the target protein even if they are sold by different vendors.
If you want to find antibodies with a known clone ID you can search for the clone ID by typing it directly into the search bar. For example, PC10 is a clone ID for a PCNA antibody.
Then, select the clone ID option under ‘filters’. This applies the clone ID filter, which you can see by the green dot next to the filter.
If I add one more filter for the lncap cell line, we can see figures where either a specific antibody product was cited, or only a clone ID was cited, which is indicated in the bottom left hand corner of each figure.
In the product results, you can see the antibodies that originated from this clone, and you can click on the clone at the top to be taken to the clone page.
Our clone pages include all of the information we’ve collected and analyzed on the clone, including published figures that cite the clone ID, or antibodies that originated from the clone.
Here, you can narrow down the results based on what’s important to you, for example, a preferred vendor, or a particular conjugation, to find the most suitable antibody produced by this clone.
