The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
ELISA: 1/100 - 1/1000.
Note: The antibody is dissolved in a buffer containing BSA, and is therefore not recommended to use for coating.
WB: 1/100 - 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 183 kDa.
Not yet tested in other applications.

Vitellogenin (Vg) is an egg yolk precursor protein expressed solely in female fish and is dormant in male fish, but in the presence of estrogenic EDCs, male fish can express the Vg gene but in a dose dependent manner. The use of Vg gene expression in male fish can be used as a molecular marker of exposure to estrogenic Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs).
