Antibody Specifications

Applications:
(under testing)Direct ELISA: antibody detection limit dilution will be 1:10,000-20,000. Western Blot: This antibody will be used at 1 - 2 µg/ml with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human Apelin. Immunohistochemistry: under testing
Conjugation/Tag:
Biotin
Host Species:
Rabbit
Preparation:
Immunogen was peptide near at N-terminus derived from human Apelin. This antibody was produced from a rabbit immunized with the immunogen. The IgG fraction of immunized serum was purified by Protein G/A affinity chromatography.
Reconstitution:
A separate vial of dilution buffer is provided for reconstitution. The antibody is supplied lyophilized, originally containing PBS, without preservative stabilizers (e.g. sodium azide). The final amount is indicated on the shipping vial.
Species Reactivity:
Human Apelin polyclonal antibody detects protein derived from human cell lysate at various concentrations. Cross reactivity with mouse and rat is not tested.
Clonality:
Polyclonal
Isotype:
IgG

Description

Apelin (APEL), an endogenous ligand for APJ, is an alternate coreceptor with CD4 for HIV-1 infection. This secreted protein inhibits HIV-1 entry into cells that coexpress APJ and CD4. By proteolytic processing of the peptide precursor, several different active peptides may be produced. Apelin-36, one such inotropic peptide, is being investigated as a potential plasma marker of cardiopulmonary disease. Apelin is highly expressed in brain, mainly in the thalamus, frontal cortex, hypothalamus and midbrain. Apelin is also secreted by the mammary gland into the colostrum and milk. Oral intake of Apelin (in milk and colostrum) may be important in the modulation of the immune responses in neonates and newborns. Apelin has also been found to be a potent stimulator of cardiac contractility and may function in the regulation of the cardiovascular system.

Storage / Stability

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.

Specificity

Human Apelin polyclonal antibody detects protein derived from human cell lysate at various concentrations. Cross reactivity with mouse and rat is not tested.
