Technical Data
Parvalbumin (PVALB, Parvalbumin alpha)
In muscle, parvalbumin is thought to be involved in relaxation after contraction. It binds two calcium ions.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA Peptide: 1:32,000
Western Blot: 0.1-0.3ug/ml, observed in human brain lysates on ~12kD bands
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
