Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab53040 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Mouse monoclonal [A1/70] to Parathyroid Hormone (ab14493). For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Detection at 0.5µg/ml with ab14493 as Capture.
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 60 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 13 kDa).
ELISA 1/10000.


  • FunctionPTH elevates calcium level by dissolving the salts in bone and preventing their renal excretion. Stimulates [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblastic cells.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in PTH are a cause of familial isolated hypoparathyroidism (FIH) [MIM:146200]; also called autosomal dominant hypoparathyroidism or autosomal dominant hypocalcemia. FIH is characterized by hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia due to inadequate secretion of parathyroid hormone. Symptoms are seizures, tetany and cramps. FIH exist both as autosomal dominant and recessive forms of hypoparathyroidism.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the parathyroid hormone family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

Thank you for your reply.

The amino acid range of the immunogen for ab53040 is aa50-100 of human parathyroid hormone with accession number P01270 (

Thank you for your email.

We generally add the location of immunogen e.g. N-terminal, C-terminal or internal on datasheet however I do agree this wasn't the case for this ab53040. This antibody would pick up the whole PTH but not 1-34 aa pepti...

Thank you for your email.

The immunogen of antibody ab53040 is a sequence from amino acid 71 to aa 100 which might be the reason this antibody is not detecting band of interest.

ab40630 is indeed tested for 100% reactivity with 1-34 p...

Thank you for your reply.
I can send one of the rabbit polyclonal antibodies ab40630 or ab53040, but their immunogens have lower homology to the rat protein so they may show a weaker cross-reactivity. I certainly understand that a rabbit polyclona...

Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab53040.

I have aligned the immunogen sequence with the mouse sequence and unfortunately, there is only 60% homology between the two. We would not predict that this antibody will cross react with the ...
