Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
RANK Ligand, RANKLigand, Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand, TNF-related activation-induced cytokine, Osteoprotegerin ligand
Human RANK (receptor activator of NF-kB) is a member of the TNFR family, identified as a dentritic cell membrane protein. Human soluble RANK Ligand is a soluble 20 kDa polypeptide, comprising the TNF homologous region of RANKL (176 amino acid residues).
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
E. coli expressed recombinant human sRANKL
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-hsRANKL polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Recombinant human sRANK Ligand (Cat.# 4318-10) can be used as a positive control.
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.
