Technical Data
A2294-48Z
AGT (Angiotensinogen, Serpin A8, SERPINA8)
Description:
The human AGT gene product, pre-angiotensinogen, is expressed in the liver and is cleaved by the enzyme renin in response to lowered blood pressure. The resulting product, angiotensin I is then cleaved by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) to generate the physiologically active enzyme angiotensin II. Human pre-angiotensinogen is encoded by two mRNAs that differ only in the length of the 3'-untranslated region due to postulated use of two polyadenylation sites. There may also be alternative initiation codons (nucleotides 40-42 and 67-69). AGT is involved in maintaining blood pressure and in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension and preeclampsia.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:500-1:1000
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin embedded): 5ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
