O8065-06G
Osteoprotegerin, ID (Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily Member 11B, Osteoclastogenesis Inhibitory Factor, TNFRSF11B, OCIF, OPG)
Description:
Osteoprotegerin (OPG, or osteoclastogenesis inhibitory factor) is a secretory glycoprotein belonging to TNF receptor superfamily. OPG consists of 401aa with molecular weight of 55kD as a monomer and 110kD as a disulfide-linked dimer. Osteoprotegerin acts as a soluble factor in the regulation of bone mass and may be beneficial in the treatment of osteoporosis associated with increased osteoclast activity.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:200-1:1000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:200
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile dH2O. 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.
