Calpains are cytosolic, calcium-dependent, cysteine proteases that are ubiquitously expressed in mammalian and avian tissues. Calpain-1 and 2 consist of a common small subunit and a large variable subunit. Domains in the large subunit include the amino terminal domain I, the proteinase domain II, domain III, and the EF-hand domain IV. Type I calpain requires micromolar amounts of calcium, while type II calpain requires millimolar amounts of calcium.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide mapping to the C-terminus of the domain III of human Calpain 2 large subunit
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal anti-calpain 2 antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (1:200-1000 dilutions). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The anti-calpain 2 antibody recognizes the 80 kDa Calpain 2. It does not cross-react with other calpains
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.
