Technical Data
B0901-03B1
BD2 (beta Defensin-2, beta 2 Defensin, Defensin beta 2, BD 2, BD-2, DEFB2, DEFB-2, HBD 2, HBD2, HBD-2, DEFB102, Skin Antimicrobial Peptide 1, SAP1) (Biotin)
Description:
Expression of BD-2 is induced during inflammation in response to bacterial products and cytokines, and is initially expressed in a precursor form, which is cleaved to release the C-terminal active portion of the protein.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: 1ug/ml
Western Blot: 0.1-0.2ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Recommended Pair:
Suitable for use as the detection or conjugate (label) antibody in sandwich immunoassay. Matched to B0901-03B as the capture or solid phase antibody.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile PBS, 0.1% BSA. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 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.
