synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal region of rat calretinin (amino acids 194-209) conjugated to KLH. This sequence is specific for calretinin and not found in other members of the EF-hand family such as calbindin-D-28K, calbindin-D-9K, myosin light chain, parvalbumin, S-100a, S-100b, S100A2 (S100L) and S100A6 (calcyclin). This sequence is identical in human and mouse calretinin and highly conserved in chicken calretinin.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin, and 15 mM sodium azide.
