Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified IH
Calcitonin is 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. Staining for calcitonin in medullary carcinoma of the thyroid produces a fine granular pattern in the cytoplasm.
Catalog #C0115-11AX
Applications and Recommended DilutionsImmunohistochemistry (Formalin/paraffin) (Use Ab at 2.5-5.0ug/ml for 30 min at RT) * [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.] The optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined by the investigator.
Positive Control Thyroid or medullary carcinoma
Cellular Localization Cytoplasmic
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at-20°C or colder.
