This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat, bovine, chicken, pig, rabbit, horse
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 385 of human Aromatase
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
Form of antibody:
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunohistochemistry
Target of this antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-Aromatase polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
Alternative names of antibody target:
25147 , Cyp19a1, Aromatase , Cyp19 , p450arom , ARO1, ARO 1, CPV, CYP19A1 , MGC104309
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml), Immunohistochemistry (10-20 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Jurkat cell lysate can be used as a positive control. The antibody should recognize aromatase in samples from human, mouse, rat, bovine, porcine, pig, sheep, rabbit, horse and chicken origins. A 55 kDa band can be detected, corresponding to the expected molecular weight of Aromatase. An additional 35 kDa band (believe to be the cleavage product of Aromatase) can also be detected in Jurkat cells.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
Aromatase is a key enzyme in steroidogenesis and plays an important role in sexual differentiation, fertility, and carcinogenesis. Many environmental chemicals may influence aromatase activity and thereby disrupt endocrine function.
Concentration of antibody:
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 antibodies-kits-proteins they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
