Polymerized porcine glucagon.

General description

Glucagon is a 29 residue containing peptide hormone secreted by pancreas. The main functions of pancreatic glucagon consist of gluconeogenesis, ketogenesis, lipolysis and glycogenolysis. Monoclonal anti-Glucagon antibody can be used as an analytical tool for quantification of the hormone. It can also be used for immunocytochemical staining of formalin fixed and Bouin-fixed, paraffin-embedded pancreatic tissue sections. Mouse anti-Glucagon antibody reacts specifically with pancreatic glucagon. The product has also shown cross reactivity with glucagon-containing cells in fixed sections of pancreas from dog, mouse, rat, rabbit, porcine, guinea pig, cat and human and weak cross reactivity for gut glucagon (enteroglucagon).


Monoclonal Anti-Glucagon reacts with pancreatic glucagon in RIA and immunocytochemistry. The affinity constant of 6.1 x 10(8) L/M in RIA. The antibody weakly cross-reacts with gut glucagon (enteroglucagon) in an immunohistological assay. Cross-reactivity has been observed with glucagon-containing cells in fixed sections of pancreas from human, porcine, dog, rabbit, mouse, rat, guinea pig, and cat.

The antibody reacts specifically against pancreatic glucagon and exhibits only very weak cross-reaction with gut glucagon (enteroglucagon). May be used for the immunohistochemical staining of Bouin′s-fixed, and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded pancreatic tissue sections. Binds to glucagon with an affinity constant of 6.1 × 108 M-1 in RIA.


Monoclonal anti-Glucagon antibody can be used in immunocytochemistry; RIA and dot blot technique (native and denatured). It can also be used in immunohistochemistry (diluted 1:5,000) .
