Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab39299 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- 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.

RelevanceThe Semaphorins constitute a large family of secreted and membrane-tethered cell signaling molecules. They have functions in neural development, immunology, cardiac growth, vascular development, lung morphogenesis and axial bone patterning. Semaphorins are defined by the presence of a conserved Sema domain at the N-terminus. These proteins can be classified into eight classes depending on their structure and species origin. Classes 3 through 7 are found in vertebrates; class 3 are secreted, class 7 are GPI-anchored and class 4 through 6 are transmembrane proteins. Two distinct transmembrane receptor families have been identified as Semaphorin receptors. Neuropilins provide binding specificity for the class 3 Semaphorins, whereas Plexins, which also contain a Sema domain serve as signaling partners for class 3 Semaphorins and as functional receptors for transmembrane Semaphorins. Semaphorin 3c inhibits axonal extension by providing local signals to specify territories inaccessible for growing axons. It is expressed maximally between days E10-12 with moderate levels from day E13 until birth.
