Technical Data
Synuclein, alpha
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:5-1:10 (frozen sections, paraffin sections)
Western Blot: 1:5

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.

Synthetic peptide corresponding to aa 116-131 of human alpha-synuclein.
Supplied as a liquid (hybridoma supernatant).
Recognizes human alpha-synuclein. Does not cross-react with mouse alpha-synuclein or recombinant beta- or gamma-synuclein.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
