Aggrecan (Proteoglycan, PG, AGC 1, Aggrecan 1, Antigen identified by monoclonal A0122, Cartilage specific proteoglycan core protein, Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan core protein 1, CSPCP, CSPG1, CSPGCP, Large aggregating proteoglycan, MSK16, SEDK)
Description:
This antibody detects aggrecan metabolites (intact or matrix protease-catabolised) in human synovial fluid samples.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:100.
Immunohistochemistry: Formalin or paraformaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded, alcohol-fixed frozen or un-fixed snap-frozen sections.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
