ARMET (Arginine-rich Mutated in Early Stage Tumors, Arginine-rich Protein, ARP, Mesencephalic Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor, MANF, MGC142148, MGC142150)
Description:
Armet encodes a highly conserved protein whose function is not yet known. The protein was initially thought to be longer at the N-terminus and to contain an arginine-rich region but transcribed evidence indicates a smaller open reading frame that does not encode the arginine tract. The presence of a specific mutation changing the previously numbered codon 50 from ATG to AGG, or deletion of that codon, has been reported in a variety of solid tumors.

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

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:16,000
Western Blot: 0.3-1ug/ml, observed in human pancreas lysates on ~21kD bands
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.
