Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab15125 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
1/200 for 10 min at RT. Boil tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

Target

  • Function
    Selectively inhibits insulin-stimulated glucose utilization and glycogen deposition in muscle, while not affecting adipocyte glucose metabolism.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the calcitonin family.
  • Domain
    The mature protein is largely unstructured in the absence of a cognate ligand, and has a strong tendency to form fibrillar aggregates. Homodimerization may be the first step of amyloid formation.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Amyloid fibrils are degraded by IDE.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products.
Concerning ab18018 - there is significant sequence homology between human amylin and that of mouse and rat, but this antibody has only been tested with human samples.
Unfortunately, we do not have any experimental data regarding the cross-reactivity of ab15125 and ab15128 and ab55411 with mouse or rat samples too.
I compared the immunogen for ab15125 with that of the mouse and rat Amylin proteins and the percentage homology for both is 100%. Based on that information ab15125 is most likely not suitable for your application.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions or concerns.
