Rabbit polyclonal antibody to human Met-Enkephalin (237-241)


Catalogue No. R-1499-50
Description Human Methionine enkephalin (Met-Enkephalin) is a small 5 amino acid peptide cleaved from the precursor pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). Met-Enkephalin is an endogenous opioid peptide that interacts with opioid receptors and produces analgesic effects. Pro-opiomelanocortin gives rise to 10 other short peptides as well. See for details and for more information on Met-Enkephalin
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 50 ug
Antigen Synthetic human Met-enkephalin peptide (237-241) conjugated to BSA.
Sequence YGGFM
Antibody Type polyclonal rabbit IgG
Other Names Pro-opiomelanocortin; POMC;(parent gene);metenkefalin;opioid growth factor (OGF);
Accession P01189 COLI_HUMAN;
Produced in Rabbit
Purity Affinity purified
Applications A dilution of 5-10 ug/mL is recommended for immunohistochemistry using formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissues and for 4% paraformaldehyde fixed frozen tissues. A dilution of 5-15 ug/mL is recommended for immunofluorescence. IHC Positive control:Brain (spinal cord, dorsal root ganglia). Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specificity Met-Enkephalin. Met-Enkephalin is highly conserved so cross-reactivity with other species Met-Enkephalin is expected.
Species Against Human
Antibody Against Met-Enkephalin
Cross-reactivity Human; mouse; rat, other species expected. Cross-reactivity with other opioid peptides is as follows: with Leu-enkephalin 5.8%; with beta-lipotropin 0.01%; with beta-endorphin 0.01%
Blast it If you wish to use this product in a species other than those specified here and want to determine the amino acid sequence homology between the immunogen and the corresponding protein in that species, simply copy the amino acid sequence for this immunogen and test it on the BLAST database that you can access through the link below. Please note that antibodies raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide. What this means in practise is that a single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule. The BLAST database can also be used to compare any amino acid sequence between species and between proteins. The full amino acid sequence of the target protein can be found by following the link in the Accession field. You can then search any amino acid sequence in the target protein using the BLAST database. When selecting a sequence to search, please choose carefully, as the sequence you choose may be a precursor rather than the mature protein for example.

Form Lyophilised with BSA. Product is lyophilized from a solution of purified antibody, PBS, and BSA containing no preservatives.
Appearance White powder
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 0.05 mL of PBS (pH 7.4). Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage At least 12 months after purchase at 2-8C (lyophilized formulations). After reconstitution, aliquot and store at -20C for a higher stability and at 2-8C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles
