C5069-96B
Chromogranin A (CGA, CHG A, Pancreastatin, Parathyroid secretory protein 1, Pituitary secretory protein I, Vasostatin, SPI)
Description:
Chromogranin A (439aa) is encoded on chromosome 14. It is present in neuroendocrine cells throughout the body, including the neuroendocrine cells of the large and small intestine, adrenal medulla and pancreatic islets. It is an excellent marker for carcinoid tumors, pheo-chromocytomas, paragangliomas, and other neuro-endocrine tumors. Coexpression of chromogranin A and neuron specific enolase (NSE) is common in neuroendocrine neoplasms.

Applications:
Suitable for Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry:
Alcohol or formalin fixed deparaffinized tissue sections (ABC peroxidase): 1:500-1:2000
Methacarn-fixed deparaffinized tissue: 1:10,000

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.
