Protein Name & Synonyms:
GC / Vitamin D BP
This product recognizes Vitamin D binding protein (VDBP), the major carrier protein of vitamin D that also transports components such as fatty acids and endotoxins and has an important role in the actin scaveging system. VDBP is a 52-58 kDa plasma protein synthesized mainly by hepatocytes. Polymorphisms in the gene give rise to three major electrophoretic variants, Gc1, Gc1s and Gc1f that differ by amino acid substitutions as well as glycosylations. The physiological significance of these phenotypes has yet to be determined.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
