Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab216758 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Applications

    Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-C Reactive Protein antibody [Y284] (ab32412)

  • Purity
    > 90 % n/a.

  • Form
    Lyophilised
  • Additional notes

    Reconstitution instructions:

    - 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

  • Function
    Displays several functions associated with host defense: it promotes agglutination, bacterial capsular swelling, phagocytosis and complement fixation through its calcium-dependent binding to phosphorylcholine. Can interact with DNA and histones and may scavenge nuclear material released from damaged circulating cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found in plasma.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the pentaxin family.
    Contains 1 pentaxin domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
