Technical Data
Calbindin is a calcium-binding protein that functions as a buffer of cytosolic calcium and is found in brain, kidney, gut and pancreatic islets. Altered expression of calbindin has been reported in certain conditions such as Huntington’s disease. This modified pattern may indicate changes in Ca2+-mediated functions. This antibody will help detect calbindin and calbindin expressing tissues.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:100-1:200 for 1 hour at RT
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Tonsil, cytoplasmic staining pattern

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20°C. Stable for 12 months at -20°C. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20°C. 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.
