The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 3 - 6 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Major transport protein for glucocorticoids and progestins in the blood of almost all vertebrate species.
Plasma; synthesized in liver. Has also been identified in a number of glycocorticoid responsive cells.
Involvement in disease
Defects in SERPINA6 are a cause of corticosteroid-binding globulin deficiency (CBG deficiency) [MIM:611489]. CBG deficiency is an extremely rare hereditary disorder characterized by reduced corticosteroid-binding capacity with normal or low plasma corticosteroid-binding globulin concentration, and normal or low basal cortisol levels associated with hypo/hypertension and muscle fatigue.
Belongs to the serpin family.
N-glycosylated; binds 5 oligosaccharide chains. Glycosylation in position Asn-260 is needed for steroid binding.
