Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
RETN, RETN1, ADSF, Adipocyte Secreted Factor , FIZZ3, FIZZ 3
Resistin (also called adipose tissue-specific secretory factor, ADSF) is a member of the family of adipocyte secreted proteins. Resistin appears to act on skeletal muscle myocytes, hepatocytes, and adipocytes themselves, where it is sμggested to reduce insulin sensitivity leading to type 2 diabetes.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Recombinant human Resistin
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human Resistin polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects Resistin in samples from human, mouse, and rat origins. Recombinant human Resistin (Cat.# 4559-25) 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.
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.
