Target of this antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-rat Resistin polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, 0.02% thimerosal.
Alternative names of antibody target:
Western Blot analysis (1-4 µg/ml).
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
Resistin is a new member to the family of adipocyte-secreted proteins. The biological functions of Resistin as well as its molecular target are largely unknown. Whether it promotes or antagonizes insulin action is still unclear. Recombinant rat Resistin is an 11.9 kDa protein consisting of 94 amino acid residues.
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.
