Technical Data
ALMS1 (Alstrom Syndrome Protein 1, KIAA0328)
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.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:32,000
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1-3ug/ml
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.
