Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
FREQ , FLUP ,NCS1 , ANTI NEURONAL CALCIUM SENSOR 1 , Frequenin , NCS-1
The neuronal calcium sensor (NCS) protein binds to calcium throμgh EF-hand motifs, are expressed in neurons. They are implicated in the regulation of neurotransmitters released at the neuromuscular junctions. NCS-1 is widely distributed in the brain, spinal cord and dorsal root ganglia. It has been shown to regulate neurosecreation in a calcium-dependent manner, potentiates nitric oxide synthase activity. NCS-1 has been reserved to indicate the protein observed in humans and mammals.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 180 of human NCS-1
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) Protein A affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Rat kidney tissue lysate can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes ~24 kDa NCS-1 from samples of human and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been determined.
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.
