Technical Data
Nitrotyrosine (nTyr) (Biotin)
The presence of nitrotyrosine has been detected in various inflammatory processes including atherosclerotic plaques. Nitrotyrosine is formed in tissues in presence of the active metabolite NO and is a stable end product of nitrosylation of tyrosine. Various pathways including the formation of peroxinitrite lead to nitrotyrosine production.

Can be used for Immunohistology on paraffin sections and frozen sections. Furthermore the antibody is useful for Western Blot and for immunoassay.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistology: 1:10
Western Blot: 1:10
Warning: keep sterile, do not add sodium azide or any nitric containing preservative since this will affect the antibody.
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%). Store at -20C or colder. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 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.
