Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Hemopexin (HPX) is a plasma protein that has the highest binding affinity for heme. HPX prevents heme-mediated oxidative stress and heme-bound iron loss by transporting heme to the liver for breakdown.
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 436 of mouse Hemopexin
Formulation of this antibody:
200 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes ~68 kDa of Hemopexin in samples from human, mouse and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
