Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab769 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.|
|ELISA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|RIA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Works best under non reducing conditions.
|Sandwich ELISA||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Capture at 1µg/ml with ab9538 as Detection.
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Functional Studies||Use at an assay dependent concentration. Effectively blocks the transferrin-transferrin receptor interactions.|
FunctionTransferrins are iron binding transport proteins which can bind two Fe(3+) ions in association with the binding of an anion, usually bicarbonate. It is responsible for the transport of iron from sites of absorption and heme degradation to those of storage and utilization. Serum transferrin may also have a further role in stimulating cell proliferation.
Tissue specificityExpressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in TF are the cause of atransferrinemia (ATRAF) [MIM:209300]. Atransferrinemia is rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by iron overload and hypochromic anemia.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the transferrin family.
Contains 2 transferrin-like domains.

No reducing agent should be added to the sample buffer. The sample can be denatured and processed by common Western blotting protocols, but the disulfide bonds must not be reduced.
