Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Retinol binding protein 4
RBP4 (Retinol Binding Protein 4). Retinol is transported in blood bound to the carrier protein RBP. Under physiological conditions, RBP binds transthyretin (TTR) to prevent glomerular filtration of low molecular weight RBP in the kidneys. The RBP/TTR molar ration provides an indirect way to indicate marginal vitamin A deficiency.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Recombinant human RBP4
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µl affinity purified goat 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 (1:500-1:1000). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Recombinant human RBP4 can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes ~25 kDa human RBP4. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
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.
