Anti-Calcitonin receptor antibody (ab11042)


  • Product nameAnti-Calcitonin receptor antibody
    See all Calcitonin receptor primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to Calcitonin receptor
  • Specificityab11042 recognises the calcitonin receptor in human, mouse and rat. The calcitonin receptor is a seven transmembrane domain cell surface protein which is coupled to G protein messenger systems. This antibody recognises an epitope within the cytoplasmic domain that is common to both C1a and C1b rat isoforms.
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: IHC-Fr, IHC-FoFr, IHC-P, WB, ELISAmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide:


    , corresponding to amino acids 476-496 of Rat Calcitonin receptor

  • Positive control
    • Kidney, cultered osteoclasts.
  • General notesShould this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab11042 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
IHC-Fr 1/10 - 1/50.
IHC-FoFr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P 1/10 - 1/50. We recommend the use of 4% paraformaldehyde fixation, rather than formalin fixation. A sensitive detection system is also recommended. e.g. A catalysed signal amplification system. This product does not require protein digestion pre-treatment This product does not require antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin embedded sections.
WB Use at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 56.9 kDa.
ELISA 1/10000.

We have only two antibodies anti-human calcitonin receptor guaranteed to work in WB in our catalogue: ab103422 and ab11042.

Both of these should recognise all three human isoforms since there is a large sequence homology between all isof...
