Technical Data
Connexin 32 (CX32, Gap Junction Beta 1 Protein, CXB-1, Gap Junction 28kD Liver Protein)
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blotting. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:5000 for neat serum and 1-10ug/ml for affinity pure using ECL. An antibody raised against this epitope has been used for Westerns (3) to detect a broad band of 28-30kD. Additional high MW. bands (aggregated Cx32) may also be detected.

ELISA (1:100K using 50-100ng Cx32 control peptide/well.

Immunohistochemistry & Immunofluorescence: We recommend the use of affinity purified antibody at 2-20ug/ml in formaldehyde fixed tissue as described (3).

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, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze 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.

As reported
A 19 amino acid peptide sequence within the 2nd cytoplasmic domain of the rat Cx32 (2) was used to generate anti-rat Cx32. Amino terminal Cysteine was added for conjugation to KLH (carrier protein)
Supplied as a liquid, neat serum, 40% glycerol.
Rat Cx32 immunogenic peptide sequences is the same in mouse, rat and human (4
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
