Technical Data
Proteoglycan, Cartilage, Adult
Proteoglycans are glycoproteins that are heavily glycosylated. They have a core protein with one or more covalently attached glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chain(s). The chains are long, linear carbohydrate polymers that are negatively charged under physiological conditions, due to the occurrence of sulfate and uronic acid groups. Proteoglycans occur in the connective tissue.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, ELISA, RIA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:100-1:200
ELISA: 1:1250-1:2500
RIA: 1:20,000-1:40,000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:250
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.
