Technical Data
C5069-96Q1
Chromogranin A (CgA, CHGA, Parathyroid Secretory Protein 1, Pituitary Secretory Protein I, SP-I)
Description:
Chromogranin A, a protein of 439aa which is encoded on chromosome 14, 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 use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:4000
Western Blot: 0.1-0.3ug/ml, observed in human kidney lysates on ~50kD bands
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.
