Application DetailsImmunohistochemistry (IHC) and Western Blotting (WB). A concentration of 0.25-0.50 µg/mL is recommended for WB. Human calponin has a predicted length of 297 aa and a MW of 34 kDa. A concentration of 0.5-1.0 µg/mL is recommended to detect calponin in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissues. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
SpecificityThe specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB and IHC against the antigen. Human; mouse; rat; chicken;

Reconstitution InstructionsSpin vial briefly before opening. Reconstitute in 1 mL of sterile-filtered PBS (pH 7.4) to achieve an antibody concentration of 100 µg/mL. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage InstructionsAt least 12 months after purchase at 2-8°C (lyophilized formulations). After reconstitution, aliquot and store at -20°C for a higher stability. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

Scientific BackgroundCalponin is a thin filament associated protein that binds calmodulin, actin and tropomyosin. The multi-gene family of calponins includes calponin 1 (CNN1), 2 (CNN2) and 3 (CNN3). CNN1 is expressed in smooth muscle and tissues containing significant amounts of smooth muscle. This antibody is predicted to detect all three forms of calponin.
