The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 21609490Cells fixed with 4% PFA, treated with 0.5% Triton for 5 minutes at Room Temperature.
Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 53 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
INSM1 may be associated with the transformation of neuroendocrine cells. It is found in several tumor cell lines of neuroendocrine origin including pheochromocytoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma, insulinoma, pituitary tumor, and small cell lung carcinoma. It is not found in any of the normal tissues tested.
