Cell replacement techniques such as stem-cell or fetal-cell therapies show great promise for many diseases. Cross-species grafting between human and animal cells or tissues requires the identification and localization of the donor material in the host environment. Antibodies to human-specific nuclei are useful cytological and histological markers for identifying human cells in xenograft models. MAB1281 stains nuclei of all human and primate cell types giving a diffuse nuclear staining pattern. Chromosomes are negatively stained in metaphase cells. The antibody does not react with nuclei from mouse or rat.
