Product DescriptionRabbit anti-DJ-1/PARK7 Polyclonal Antibody (Unconjugated), suitable for WB.
Application DetailsWB and IHC. Suggested dilution of 1:5,000 is recommended for WB. DJ-1 is a soluble protein of 189 amino acids and detected with 23 kDa mobility by western blotting. The suggested dilution for IHC is 1:100. Detected astrocyte cytoplasmic labelling in human brain formaldehyde-treated tissue. Biosensis recommends that the optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
SpecificityConfirmed by WB using soluble mouse and human brain extracts, reactivity for major product diminished by peptide absorption.
