Technical Data
Caveolin 1 (CAV1, caveolae protein, 22kD , HGNC:1527, CAV, MSTP085, VIP21, caveolin 1, alpha isoform, caveolin 1, beta isoform, cell growth-inhibiting protein 32)

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Peptide ELISA: antibody detection limit dilution: 1:32,000
Western Blot: 0.3-1ug/ml. Bands at approximately 21kD and 25kD in human heart, lung and spleen lysates using antibody at 0.3ug/ml. hese bands correspond to earlier findings in literature (Wiechen et al Am J Pathol. 2001 Mar;158(3):833-9, PMID: 11238032 ). This protein has a calculated MW of 20.5kD according to NP_001744.2.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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

Peptide Blocking:
Corresponding peptide is available for Peptide Blocking studies. See C2097-91E-P. Antibody is typically 0.5mg/ml and peptide is supplied as a 100ul pellet. When peptide is reconstituted in 200ul water, the concentration would also be 0.5mg/ml. To start, the best ratio would be 1:1 (molar excess of peptide relative to antibody when identical volumes are mixed). Mix equal volumes of peptide and antibody at the required dilution and leave at ambient temperature. It is best is to have two identical blots to be incubated with equal amount of antibody, but one with the antibody pre-adsorbed to the peptide for 20min. Then incubate and develop the two blots in parallel.
