Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against C-peptide.
Human C-peptide conjugated with BSA.
This antibody reacts specifically with C-peptide, a part of the Proinsulin molecule. Proinsulin consists of the three parts: C-peptide and two long strands of amino acids (alpha and beta chains; later become linked together to form the Insulin molecule). No cross-reactivity with Insulin or other peptide hormones or proteins was observed.
Immunohistochemistry (25 ug/mL) The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
In PBS, pH 7.4 (15 mM sodium azide)
Store at 4°C. For long term storage store at -20°C. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
This product contains sodium azide: a POISONOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE which should be handled by trained staff only.
After removal of the precursor signal peptide, proinsulin is post-translationally cleaved into two chains (peptide A and peptide B) that are covalently linked via two disulfide bonds. Binding of this mature form of insulin to the insulin receptor (INSR) stimulates glucose uptake. A variety of mutant alleles with changes in the coding region have been identified. There is a read-through gene, INS-IGF2, which overlaps with this gene at the 5' region and with the IGF2 gene at the 3' region. [provided by RefSeq
