Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E IH
Calcitonin is a 32 amino acid peptide which can be demonstrated in C cells of the normal and hyperplastic thyroid. Staining for calcitonin may be used for the identification of a spectrum of C cell proliferative abnormalities ranging from C cell hyperplasia to invasive tumors. Stining for calcitonin in medullary carcinoma of the thyroid produces a fine granular pattern in the cytoplasm. Amyloid deposits within the tumor may also exhibit varying degrees of calcitonin activity.
Catalog #C0115-08C
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunohistology (Formalin/paraffin): 1:150 for 10 min at RT Note: Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive ControlThyroid or medullary carcinoma
