Asporin (Periodontal Ligament-associated Protein 1, PLAP-1, ASPN, PLAP1, SLRR1C, UNQ215/PRO241)
Description:
ASPN belongs to a family of leucine-rich repeat (LRR) proteins associated with the cartilage matrix. The name asporin reflects the unique aspartate-rich N terminus and the overall similarity to decorin.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 0.03-0.1ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Human Bone Marrow lysate

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.
