Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab213704 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-COX2 / Cyclooxygenase 2 antibody [EP1978Y] (ab62331)

  • Form

  • Additional notes

    This is the blocking peptide for ab62331.

    - 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 solution just prior to use.

  • Function

    Mediates the formation of prostaglandins from arachidonate. May have a role as a major mediator of inflammation and/or a role for prostanoid signaling in activity-dependent plasticity.
  • Pathway

    Lipid metabolism; prostaglandin biosynthesis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the prostaglandin G/H synthase family.
    Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
  • Post-translational

    S-nitrosylation by NOS2 (iNOS) activates enzme activity. S-nitrosylation may take place on different Cys residues in addition to Cys-561.
  • Cellular localization

    Microsome membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
