Unverified Candidates For Xenopus-Reactive Antibodies

Antibodies listed in this spreadsheet are either listed for use with Xenopus by the manufacturer OR have significant antigen sequence similarity to Xenopus species. Note that these antibodies have NOT been tested by a Xenopus researcher to our knowledge. However, many of the manufacturers offer incentives for testing their antibodies in exchange for your positive/negative testing results.
