Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Resistin-like beta, Cysteine-rich secreted protein FIZZ2
Human RELM beta (Resistin-like molecule beta/FIZZ2) is a new member to the family of adipocyte secreted proteins called adipocytokines. This family includes the RELM alpha, RELM beta and Resistin molecules. Interestingly, RELM beta and Resistin share similar characteristics such as an additional cysteine residue within the variable N-terminal region and are both homodimeric proteins. However, the RELM beta is expressed only in the gastrointestinal track; especially the colon, while the Resistin and RELM beta are secreted exclusively by adipocytes. Currently, the biological function of these proteins, as well as their molecular targets is largely unknown. Recombinant Human RELM beta is a disulfide-linked homodimer with a total molecular weight of 11.0 kDa, consisting of 90 amino acid residue chains.

E. coli expressed recombinant human RELM-β
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human RELM-β polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). Recombinant human RELM-β (Cat. # 4654-25) can be used as a positive control. However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
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.
