Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab94898 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
ELISA 1/0.5 - 1/2.
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 134 kDa. Detection limit is 1.5-3.0 ng, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions
Indirect ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. To detect IL-10 by indirect ELISA (using 100 µl/well antibody solution) a concentration of 0.5 - 2.0 µg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents, allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant rIL-10.


  • Function
    EGF stimulates the growth of various epidermal and epithelial tissues in vivo and in vitro and of some fibroblasts in cell culture. Magnesiotropic hormone that stimulates magnesium reabsorption in the renal distal convoluted tubule via engagement of EGFR and activation of the magnesium channel TRPM6. Can induce neurite outgrowth in motoneurons of the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis in vitro (PubMed:10964941).
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in kidney, salivary gland, cerebrum and prostate.
  • Involvement in disease
    Hypomagnesemia 4
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 9 EGF-like domains.
    Contains 9 LDL-receptor class B repeats.
  • Post-translational
    O-glycosylated with core 1-like and core 2-like glycans. It is uncertain if Ser-954 or Thr-955 is O-glycosylated. The modification here shows glycan heterogeneity: HexHexNAc (major) and Hex2HexNAc2 (minor).
