Western blotting: 1:200 using ECL on rat pancreas lysate.

Immunohistochemistry on rat pancrease sections. Dilutions should be made using a carrier protein such as BSA (1-3%).

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.

Physical form

Lyophilized from PBS, pH 7.4, containing 1% BSA and 0.025% sodium azide. Reconstitute with 50 μL of sterile distilled water. Centrifuge antibody preparation before use (10,000 x g for 5 min).

Storage and Stability

Maintain lyophilized material at -20°C for up to 6 months after date of receipt. After reconstitution maintain at -20°C in undiluted aliquots for up to 6 months. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
