Protein Name & Synonyms:
Cortistatin [Cleaved into: Cortistatin-29, Cortistatin-17]
ELISA (recommended work dilution= 1:320,000), Western Blotting (recommended work dilution= 1:1,000-5,002),
This antibody was produced from antiserum of rabbits immunized with a polypeptide immunogen. The IgG fraction was purified by Protein G/A affinity chromatography.
Product is supplied as a powder obtained from lyophilization of purified antibody in PBS without preservatives. Reconstitute the antibody with sterile 1 x PBS to a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
Precortistatin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CORT gene.Cortistatin is a neuropeptide with strong structural similarity to somatostatin (both peptides belong to the same family). It binds to all known somatostatin receptors, and shares many pharmacological and functional properties with somatostatin, including the depression of neuronal activity. However, it also has many properties distinct from somatostatin, such as induction of slow-wave sleep, apparently by antagonism of the excitatory effects of acetylcholine on the cortex, reduction of locomotor activity, and activation of cation selective currents not responsive to somatostatin.
The antibody is stable for at least 1 year from the date of receipt when stored at -20°C to -70°C. Reconstituted antibody can also be aliquotted and stored at 4°C for 1 month or at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer for many months without detectable loss activity. Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
