Technical Data
Prolactin, Recombinant, Human (LTH, Luteotropic Hormone, Lactogenic Hormone)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant prolactin comprises a 199 amino acid fragment (29-227) corresponding to the mature prolactin protein and is expressed in E. coli with an amino-terminalhexahistidine tag.

Prolactin is a neuroendocrine hormone synthesized primarily by the pituitary gland but also a variety of other cell types including the placenta, brain and uterus. Its primary function is to promote and maintain lactation but has also been shown to have a role in breast cancer development, regulation of reproductive function and immunoregulation.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
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, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 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.
