Technical Data
Cap-G (Condensin Complex Subunit 3, Chromosome-associated Protein G, Condensin Subunit CAP-G, hCAP-G, Melanoma Antigen NY-MEL-3, Non-SMC Condensin I Complex Subunit G, XCAP-G Homolog, NCAPG, CAPG, NYMEL3)
Capping protein (actin filament), gelsolin like protein, first purified from rabbit alveolar macrophages, was named macrophage capping protein. The protein was subsequently renamed Cap G (gene symbol CAPG). 'Cap' was chosen because unlike other members of the gelsolin/villin family, this protein caps the barbed ends of actin filaments but does not sever them. 'G' was included in the name because the derived amino acid sequence of Cap G most closely resembles gelsolin, possessing 49% identity with its amino terminal half.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:100-1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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.
