    Thank you for contacting us this afternoon in regards to the Anti-Calcipressin 1 antibody [EPR8911], ab140131.

    As discussed over the phone, I have had a look into whether this antibody is likely to be able to detect all isoforms of the mouse Calcipressin 1 protein. This antibody is raised against a synthetic peptide taken from the human Calcipressin 1 protein. Unfortunately, the peptide sequence falls within the N-terminal portion of the protein. From the sequence alignment of the human protein (SwissProt to that of the three mouse isoforms (SwissProt reference this immunogen is only present in the isoform 1 and 2 of the mouse protein. Please refer to the attachment of this email for the sequence alignment. The antibody would therefore not be able to detect the third isoform (

    I have had a look at the other antibodies we have directed against this target to see if we have any other antibodies which may be suitable for your experiment. From this, I have found that the goat polyclonal antibody ab136845 should be able to detect all three isoforms of the mouse protein from the immunogen used (residues 145-157 of human Calcipressin 1).

    Alternatively, the immunogen used to raise the antibodies ab80982 and ab83271 indicate that these should also be able to detect the three mouse isoforms. However, only ab80982 has actually been tested with mouse samples and I would therefore not be able to guarantee that it would cross react with the mouse protein.

    If you are particularly interested in ab80982 we do have an Abtrial scheme which you would be eligible to participate in with this antibody (as the species you are hoping to use has not been tested). More information on this offer can be found from the following link:

    Please let me know if you would like more information on this trial or if you would like to participate in it.

    I hope this has been of help. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
