Technical Data
Clusterin, beta, Rat (SGP-2, Sulfated Glycoprotein-2, DAG, Dimeric Acidic Glycoprotein, TRPM-2, Testosterone Repressed Prostate Message-2)
Clusterin, which is also known as Sulfated Glycoprotein-2 (SGP-2), Dimeric Acidic Glycoprotein (DAG), and Testosterone Repressed Prostate Message-2 (TRPM-2), is a disulfide-linked heterodimeric sulfated glycoprotein expressed in a variety of tissues. Although its function is unknown, clusterin binds to cells, membranes and hydrophobic proteins. It also inhibits complement activation. Induced or elevated levels of clusterin have been associated with programmed cell death caused by hormonal stimuli or traumatic insult.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 0.5-2ug/ml. Detects rat clusterin (70kD) in rat serum under non-reducing conditions.
Immunohistochemistry: 10ug/ml. Detects rat clusterin in rat brain sections fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde/2% acetic acid in PBS.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
