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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 22 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 20 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Adrenomedullin peptide (ab69116).
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • Function
    AM and PAMP are potent hypotensive and vasodilatator agents. Numerous actions have been reported most related to the physiologic control of fluid and electrolyte homeostasis. In the kidney, am is diuretic and natriuretic, and both am and pamp inhibit aldosterone secretion by direct adrenal actions. In pituitary gland, both peptides at physiologically relevant doses inhibit basal ACTH secretion. Both peptides appear to act in brain and pituitary gland to facilitate the loss of plasma volume, actions which complement their hypotensive effects in blood vessels.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highest levels found in pheochromocytoma and adrenal medulla. Also found in lung, ventricle and kidney tissues.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the adrenomedullin family.

    All lanes : Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 20 kDa
    Observed band size: 22 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 170 kDa, 70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 8 minutes
  • IHC image of Adrenomedullin staining in Human placenta formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab69117, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
