Fatty Acid-Binding Protein, Brain (B-FABP), Recombinant, Human
10ug
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant human B-FABP comprises a 132aa polypeptide (1-132) corresponding to the full-length protein and is expressed in E. coli with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.

Fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs), such as B-FABP, are a group of low-molecular weight cytosolic proteins involved in the solubilization and transport of fatty acids. Together with the heart-type fatty acid-binding proteins (H-FABP), B-FABP is released into serum after acute ischaemic stroke and is used as an early marker for the diagnosis of stroke.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA. 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, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and 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.
