Technical Data
Acidic Hair Keratin, K37 (KRT37, Keratin 37 HA7, Hair Keratin, Type I Ha7, hHa7, HHA7, HKA7, K37, Keratin, Type I Cuticular Ha7, Keratin-37, KRTHA7, hHa7)
Type I hair keratin is one of the two types of hair keratin. It is an acidic protein which heterodimerizes with type II hair keratins to form hair and nails.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:200. For enhancement of cortex staining, preincubate fixed sections with Triton X-100 (in PBS) for 1-5 minutes prior to first antibody incubation step. Incubate for 1 hour at RT.
Western Blot (ECL): 1:2000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
