Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Matrilin-2 is part of the Matrilin family of secreted extracelluar matrix proteins that consist of Matrilin -1 to Matrilin-4. Matrilin-2 encodes a member of the von Willebrand factor A domain protein family. It is involved in matrix assembly and development of filamentous networks in the extracellular matrices of various tissues.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acids 931 of human Matrilin-2
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-Matrilin-2 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 120-150 kDa Matrilin-2 from samples of human, mouse and rat origins. An additional ~55 kDa band and a ~38 kDa band can also be detected in rat kidney and Jurkat cells, individually. Other species have not been determined.
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.
