Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-Leu Enkephalin antibody (ab85798)
70 - 90% by HPLC.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Information available upon request.
Enkephalin and enkephalin-like peptides have been detected in many animal species. In mammals these opioid pentapeptides are cleaved from a common precursor molecule which is expressed in a number of cell types, including neurons and endocrine cells associated with the sympathetic nervous system where they are often co-stored with catecholamines. They are known to be endogenous ligands for Sopioid receptors and are known to mediate analgesia at the spinal level.
