The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 150 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 111 kDa).
Use a concentration of 2 - 5 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 0.01 - 0.1 µg/ml.
FunctionHas a pivotal role in cytoprotective cellular mechanisms triggered by oxygen deprivation. May play a role as a molecular chaperone and participate in protein folding.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in tissues that contain well-developed endoplasmic reticulum and synthesize large amounts of secretory proteins. Highly expressed in liver and pancreas and lower expression in brain and kidney. Also expressed in macrophages within aortic atherosclerotic plaques, and in breast cancers.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the heat shock protein 70 family.
