Target of this antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) of antibody in PBS containing 0.01 % BSA, 0.01 % thimerosal, and 50 % glycerol, pH7.2
Alternative names of antibody target:
Procalcitonin, calcitonin, CALCA; CALC1; CGRP; CGRP-I; CGRP1; CT; KC; MGC126648
Western blot: 1:200
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
Procalcitonin is a peptide hormone mainly produced by the C cells of the thyroid and certain endocrine cells of the lung. Under normal expression conditions, procalcitonin is immediately cleaved into three specific fragments, an N terminal residue, calcitonin and katacalcin. Levels of unprocessed procalcitonin rises significantly after bacterial infection, trauma or shock.
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.
Scope note:Identification of proteins or peptides that have been electrophoretically separated by blot transferring from the electrophoresis gel to strips of nitrocellulose paper, followed by labeling with antibody probes.
