Technical Data
B2702-29B
Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP)
Description:
Brain natriuretic peptide is a 32 amino acid polypeptide secreted by the ventricles of the heart in response to excessive stretching of myocytes in the ventricles. At the time of release, a co-secreted 76 amino acid N-terminal fragment (NT-proBNP) is also released with BNP. BNP binds to and activates NPRA in a similar fashion to atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) but with 10-fold lower affinity.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Hybridoma:
Sp2/0 myeloma cells with spleen cells of Balb/c mice.

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 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
