Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum IH IF
Pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP), originally isolated from ovine hypothalamus, belongs to the VIP-family of peptides. It occurs in two biologically active forms, PACAP-38 and PACAP-27. PACAP is abundant in the brain, but can be also found in the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Absorption with 10-100ug immunogen per ml diluted antiserum abolishes the staining, while PRP, VIP, PHI, CRF, oxytocin and vasopressin do not.
