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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB
IHC-P
  • Application notesWB: Use at a concentration of 1-5 µg/ml.
    IHC-P: Use at a concentration of 3 µg/ml.

    This antibody has only been tested in WB against the recombinant fragment used as immunogen and may not recognize Hepcidin 25 but pro-hepcidin. We have no data on the detection of endogenous protein.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionSeems to act as a signaling molecule involved in the maintenance of iron homeostasis. Seems to be required in conjunction with HFE to regulate both intestinal iron absorption and iron storage in macrophages.
      Has strong antimicrobial activity against E.coli ML35P N.cinerea and weaker against S.epidermidis, S.aureus and group b streptococcus bacteria. Active against the fungus C.albicans. No activity against P.aeruginosa.
    • Tissue specificityHighest expression in liver and to a lesser extent in heart and brain. Low levels in lung, tonsils, salivary gland, trachea, prostate gland, adrenal gland and thyroid gland. Secreted into the urine.
    • Involvement in diseaseHemochromatosis 2B
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the hepcidin family.
    • Cellular localizationSecreted.
