Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
TFF-2, TFF 2, TFF2, trefoil factor 2, Spasmolytic polypeptide, SP, Spasmolysin
The Trefoil Factor peptides (TFF1, TFF2 and TFF3) are expressed in the gastrointestinal tract, and appear to play an important role in intestinal mucosal defense and repair. TFF2 has been shown to inhibit gastrointestinal motility and gastric acid secretion. Recent data sμggests a potential role for TFF2 in acute and chronic asthma. Human TFF2 is a 12.0 kDa polypeptide of 106 amino acid residues.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
E. coli expressed human TFF-2
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human TFF-2 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 (0.5-2 µg/ml). Per researchers feedback, it can also be used in ELISA (2-3 µg/ml) and neutralization (3-6 µg/ml). 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.
