||A synthetic peptide (C-GSLKPEDAEVFKDSMVPGEK) as a part of rat VR1 protein (aa: 819-838) conjugated to KLH has been used as the immunogen.
||VR1; Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1; TrpV1; osm-9-like TRP channel 1; OTRPC1; Vanilloid receptor 1; Capsaicin receptor; VR-1
||Protein G purified immunoglobulin
||IHC. Recommended to be used at a concentration of 0.5-1 µg/ml. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||A high level of specificity has been confirmed by immunohistochemical staining of rat DRG.
||This antiserum is known to react with rat and guinea pig. It is predicted to react with mouse due to sequence homology.
||If you would like to use this product in another species other than those specified here, or to see the shared identity between the immunogen used here in different species and/or other molecules, simply copy the immunogen (from the Immunogen field) and paste it HERE and blast/format it. Note that, antisera raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide ie only one single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule.
||Reconstitute in 100 µl of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
||After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20ºC for a higher stability and at 4ºC with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
||12 months after purchase.
