Epithelial membrane protein 3 (EMP3) is a multi pass membrane protein that has two N- glycosylation and four transmembrane domain. EMP3 is a myelin-related protein involves in cell-cell interactions and cell proliferation. Over-expression of EMP3 may indicate carcinogenesis or the development of oligodendrogial tumors.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 147 of rat EMP-3
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-rat EMP3 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 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. Due to glycosylation, the antibody detects higher molecular weight bands (~32 kDa) than predicted 18 kDa band.
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.
