Ornithine Decarboxylase (ODC, Dodc1, Ornithine Decarboxylase 1, Odc1, Ornithine Decarboxylase 2, ODC2, ODCP, Ornithine Decarboxylase Structural 1, RNODC)
Description:
Ornithine decarboxylase is the rate-limiting enzyme in polyamine biosynthesis converting ornithine into putrescine. In normal tissue ornithine decarboxylase activity is low but increases in proliferating tissue.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunofluorescenc (frozen): 1:300-1:500 with overnight incubation at 4C.
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Stefanini-fixed frozen sections of renal cortex from testosterone-treated mice.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 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.
