The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-n-Myc antibody (ab24193)
- 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.

Involvement in diseaseNote=Amplification of the N-MYC gene is associated with a variety of human tumors, most frequently neuroblastoma, where the level of amplification appears to increase as the tumor progresses. Defects in MYCN are the cause of microcephaly-oculo-digito-esophageal-duodenal syndrome (MODED) [MIM:164280]; also known as oculodigitoesophagoduodenal syndrome (ODED). Microcephaly-oculo-digito-esophageal-duodenal syndrome is characterized by variable combinations of esophageal and duodenal atresias, microcephaly, learning disability and limb malformations. Cardiac and renal malformations, vertebral anomalies, and deafness have also been described. Defects in MYCN are the cause of microcephaly and digital abnormalities with normal intelligence (MCPHDANI) [MIM:602585].
