Technical Data
Fatty Acid Binding Protein, Cardiac (FABP)
FABP is a plasma marker of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The plasma kinetics of FABP (15kD) closely resemble those of myoglobin in that elevated plasma concentrations are found within 2 hours after AMI and return to normal generally within 18-24 hours. The concentration of FABP in the skeletal muscle is 20 times lower than in cardiac tissue (for myoglobin the same content for cardiac and skeletal tissue), that makes FABP to be cardiac specific than myoglobin. FABP a useful biochemical marker for the early assessment or exclusion of AMI. FABP also appears a useful plasma marker for the estimation of myocardial infarct size.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Matched Pairs:
Capture: F0019-75
Detection: F0019-75G
Suitable for use as the detection or conjugate (label) antibody.
Matched to F0019-75 as the capture or solid phase antibody.

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.
