5-Methoxytryptophan, Conjugated
Description:
Applications: Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Specificity
Using a conjugate 5-methoxytryptophan-Glutaraldehyde-Protein, antibody specificity was performed with an ELISA test by competition experiments with the following compounds :

Compounds Cross-reactivity ratio(a)
5-Methoxytryptophan-G-BSA 1
5-Hydroxytryptophan-G-BSA 1/>100,000
Tryptophan-G-BSA 1/5800
5-Methoxytryptamine-G-BSA 1/100,000


(a) : 5-Methoxytryptophan-G-BSA concentration/unconjugated or conjugated indolealkylamine concentration at half displacement.
G = Glutaraldehyde, BSA = Bovine Serum Albumin

Recommended dilution
The anti-conjugated 5-methoxytryptophan antibodies stains well between a 1/2,000-1/5,000 dilution.

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.
