Afamin (ALB2, ALBA, ALF, Alpha-Alb, Alpalpha-albumin, MGC125339, MGC125338, ALF, ALBA, ALB2, afamin, AFMha-albumin, MGC125338, MGC125339)
Description:
This gene is a member of the albumin gene family, which is comprised of four genes that localize to chromosome 4 in a tandem arrangement. These four genes encode structurally-related serum transport proteins that are known to be evolutionarily related. The protein encoded by this gene is regulated developmentally, expressed in the liver and secreted into the bloodstream.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Peptide ELISA Titer: 1:16,000
Western Blot: 0.3-1ug/ml detects ~80kD band observed in Human Brain (Cerebellum and Cerebral Cortex) lysates (calculated MW of 69.1kD according to NP_001124.1)
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 at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
