Thrombospondin (TSP)
Description:
Thrombospondin is a protein from platelet a-granules. It is made up of three identical subunits bound by interchain disulfides. It is secreted at sites of platelet activation and aggregation and is involved in the processes of chemotaxis, adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of leukocytes, fibroblasts, smooth muscle and endothelial cells.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Not suitable for Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot (Reduced and non-reduced): 0.5-1ug/ml for 2 hours at RT.
Optimal dilution to be determined by 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. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
