Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
FLJ16432 , HBP , HDLBP , PRO2900 , VGL , vigilin
High density lipoprotein-binding protein (HDLBP) or Vigilin is a protein that plays a role in the regulation and delivery of fat to cells for energy and storage. HDLBP binds HDL molecules and may function in the elimination of excess cellular cholesterol.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat, chicken
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 166 of rat HDLBP
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes ~19-36 kDa and 80-110 kDa bands of HDLBP in samples from human, mouse and rat, origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
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.
