Technical Data
Aquaporin 4 (AQP4, WCH4, MIWC, Mercury-insensitive Water Channel)
Aquaporin 4 is located in various tissues including the gastro intestinal tract, kidney and brain.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry(frozen and paraffin): 1:50 Requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections. Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
ELISA: 1:500-1:10,000
Immunoprecipitation: 1:500-1:5000
Western Blot: 1:500-1:5000
Optimal working dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Recommended Secondary Reagents:
I1904-65W: IgG, F(ab)2 (HRP) Pab RbxMo
I1904-66C: IgG, F(ab)2, X-Adsorbed (HRP) Pab RbxMo

Recommended Positive Control Tissue:

Spleen cells from immunized Balb/c mice were fused with the cells of Sp-2/0 Ag14 mouse myeloma cell line.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, 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.
