P9009-10AX
Prolactin (BSA & Azide Free) (LTH, Luteotropic Hormone, Lactogenic Hormone)
Description:
Prolactin is a pituitary hormone involved in the stimulation of milk production, salt and water regulation, growth, development and reproduction. Prolactin producing cells make up ~20% of the pituitary.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: Capture or tracer
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/paraffin): 1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Pituitary gland

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 at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
