Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acids 40 of mouse Lipocalin 2
Gene ID: 16819
Appearance: Colorless liquid
Concentration: 0.5 mg/ml
Formulation: 100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-Lipocalin 2 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
Purification: Affinity purified
Species Reactivity: Mouse
Application: Western blot
Application & Usage: Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes ~ 25 kDa Lipocalin 2 of human, mouse, and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested. A ~70 kDa unknown band can also be detected.
Storage Temp.: -20 °C

Background Descriptions: Lipocalin 2 is from a family of proteins that are involved in the transportation of small hydrophobic molecules including steroids, retinoids, bilin and retinods. Lipocalins have been linked to many biolchemical processes such as immune response, pheromone transport, biological prostaglandin synthesis, retinoid binding, and cancer cell interactions.
Handling: The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
Usage: For Research Use Only! Not to be used in humans.
