Technical Data
Fatty Acid Binding Protein (FABP), Recombinant, Human, Muscle and Heart
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant human FABP is expressed in E. coli with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.

Fatty acid binding protein is one of a group of low- molecular weight proteins involved in the solubilization and transport of fatty acids. The release of cytoplasmic heart fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) into the plasma of cardiac patients is used as a marker of cardiac damage.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

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

Storage and Stability:
For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, 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.
