Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab117190 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Biological activity
    Specific activity : approximately 0.5 - 0.6 units/mg. Enzymatic activity was confirmed by measuring the amount of enzyme catalyzing the oxidation of 1 micromole NADPH per minute at 25°C. Specific activity was expressed as units/mg protein.
  • Applications

    SDS-PAGE

    Functional Studies

  • Purity
    > 95 % SDS-PAGE.
    ab117190 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
  • Form
    Liquid
  • Additional notes
    Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
