Function: Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP) is produced by cardiomyocites and is secreted into the bloodstream. ANP acts on convoluted tubules in kidney reducing sodium absorption which results in reducing the blood pressure.
Applications: Recommended for Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and Cytochemistry (ICC).
Working Dilution for Immunofluorescence (ICC): 5 – 15 µg/mL
Working Dilution for Immunohistochemistry (IHC): 5 – 10 µg/mL
IHC Positive control: Heart, kidney.
Specificity: Confirmed by RIA against the synthetic peptide.
Cross-reactivity: Human; mouse; rat. Highly conservative and expected to interact with feline, canine, porcine, bovine, and equine ANP/ANF.
Reconstitution: Reconstitute in 0.05 mL of PBS (pH 7.4) to achieve an antibody concentration of 1000 µg/mL. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage / Stability: At least 12 months after purchase at 2 - 4°C. After reconstitution, aliquot and store at -20°C for a higher stability and at 4°C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
