Technical Data
Cathepsin B
Cathepsin B is a cysteine endopeptidase which is synthesized as a 40kD inactive glycoprotein which is processed into the mature form. Cathepsin B is widely expressed by various tissues.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry (paraffin-embedded sections). Other applications not tested.

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

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 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.
