Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
ADFP , ADRP , MGC10598 , adipophilin, perilipin, 2PLIN2
Adipocyte differentiation-related protein (ADFP) also called Adipophilin is associated with the globule surface membrane material. ADFP (Adipophilin) occurs in a wide range of cultured cell lines, including fibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. ADFP may be a possible indicator for the identification of specialized differentiated cells containing lipid droplets and for diseases that link to fat-accumulating cells.

Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acids 426 of human ADFP
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit 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 (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 48 kDa ADFP in samples from human, mouse, and rat origins. 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.
