Phone call asking if the Anti-GHRHR antibody - C-terminal is likely to cross react with sheep samples.
Asked on Nov 20 2012
Thank you for contacting us yesterday in regards to the anti-GHRHR antibody (ab150575).
Unfortunately, as you have discovered from the datasheet of this antibody, this antibody has not been used with sheep samples to our knowledge as yet. However, I have now checked the sequence homology shared between the immunogen used to raise the antibody and the sheep protein. This is 100% and we would therefore expect the antibody to cross react, however as we have not tested it we would not be able to guarantee this.
However, as discussed over the phone, if you would like to purchase ab150575 and use it with your sheep samples, we can offer you a testing discount. This offer means that if you purchase ab150575 as normal, test the antibody with your rabbit samples and let us know of the results through an Abreview (no matter whether positive or negative) you would then be eligible to claim the value of ab150575 (£227) off any product in our catalogue. More information on this offer can be found here:
Please note that the antibody to be tested must be purchased, tested, the Abreview submitted and the free product claimed within a 4 month period.
If you would be interested in participating in this scheme please do let me know as a discount code needs to be issued prior to the purchase of ab150575.
I hope this information has been of help. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us again.
