Product DescriptionRabbit anti-Surfactant Protein A (SP-A) Polyclonal Antibody (Unconjugated), suitable for WB.
Application DetailsWestern Blotting (WB). A concentration of 0.1-0.5 µg/mL is recommended for WB. Human Surfactant protein A (precursor) has a predicted length of 248 amino acids and MW of 26 kDa. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
TargetSurfactant Protein A (SP-A)
SpecificityThe specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB against the antigen. Human; rat; predicted to react with mouse due to sequence homology
Target Host SpeciesHuman
Species ReactivityHuman, Mouse (Predicted), Rat
Immunogen DescriptionA synthetic peptide corresponding to a region (221-236 aa) from human Surfactant Protein A.
Scientific BackgroundIn the presence of calcium ions, Surfactant Protein A binds to surfactant phospholipids to lower the surface tension at the air-liquid interface in the alveoli of the mammalian lung and is essential for normal respiration (Ref: SWISSPROT).
