Troponin T is a thin filament regulatory protein of striated muscle that binds to troponin C and I to tropomyosin and is required for calcium-dependent ATPase activity of myofibrillar proteins. It is important in proper muscle function and myofibril formation. In the human heart, four cTnT isoforms are expressed in a developmentally regulated manner. This expression in the human heart is affected by heart failure.
Suitable for use in Electron Microscopy, Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.
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.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
