Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IP
Catalog #C7856-02A
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Western Blotting, Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: We recommend testing of antiserum at 1:1000-1:5000 for neat serum and 1-10ug/ml for affinity pure using Chemiluminescence technique. An antibody made to a similar epitope has been shown to recognize 40kD band in various tissues (3).
ELISA (1:10K-100K using 50-100ng Cx40 control peptide/well.
Immunoprecipitations. We recommend the use of affinity pure antibodies at 2-10ug affinity pure antibodies (3).
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
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. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.

FormSupplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.1% BSA, 0.02% sodium merthiolate, before the addition of 40% glycerol.
PurityPurified using a peptide-Sepharose column.
ImmunogenA 19 amino acid peptide sequence within the C-terminal cytoplasmic domain of Mouse Cx40 (2) Peptide was coupled to KLH (carrier protein)
SpecificityMouse Cx40 immunogenic peptide sequence is specific for Cx40 and no significant homology is seen with other Connexin. The Cx40 peptide is 100% (19/19 aa); 100% (19/19 aa) and 68% (13/19 aa) with the rat Cx40, human Cx 40 and chicken Cx42, respectively (4). Interspecies crossreactivity of the ant-mouse Cx40 is not known
