Calcitonin
Description:
Calcitonin leads to a lowering of plasma calcium and phosphate levels via the inhibition of bone resorption and excretion through the kidneys. Calcitonin is found in C cells of the normal and hyperplastic thyroid.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Immunocytochemistry: 1:500
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
