It modifies the metabolic state of the mother during pregnancy to facilitate the energy supply of the fetus. Recombinant human Placental Lactogen is a 22.3 kDa protein.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
E. coli expressed recombinant human Placental Lactogen
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). Detects 22 kDa human Placental Lactogen in Western blot analysis. Reactivity to other species have not been determined. Recombinant human Placental Lactogen (Cat.# 4869-20) can be used as a positive control.
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.
