ALMS 1 (Alstrom Syndrome 1)
Description:
This protein contains a large tandem-repeat domain that contains no cysteine residues. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Alstrom syndrome. The encoded protein may play a role in hearing, sight, obesity, and liver function. Alternative splice variants have been described but their full length sequences have not been determined.

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

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: > 1:32000
Western Blot: No signal obtained yet but low background observed in Human Muscle lysate at up to 0.5ug/ml.

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, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze 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.

Concentration:
~0.5mg/ml
Immunogen:
Synthetic peptide: RVTNQLLGRKVPWD from C Terminus of the protein sequence according to NP_055935.
Purity:
Purified from goat serum by ammonium sulfate precipitation followed by antigen affinity chromatography using the immunizing peptide.
Form
Supplied as a liquid in TBS, pH 7.3, 0.5% BSA, 0.02% sodium azide.
Specificity:
Recognizes ALMS 1. The C-terminus of ALMS 1 shares an 8 amino acid stretch with two other human proteins: hypothetical protein (XP_169104) and ERAL1 (NP_005693). However, this stretch is located internally in these two proteins and so will most likely not crossreact with this antibody. The N-terminus, not chosen as the peptide, is expected to cyclize during synthesis. Species Crossreactivity: Expected to crossreact with Human and Mouse due to sequence homology.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
