Met-Enkephalin (Cat #: MV1010)
Product Description Rabbit polyclonal antibody to human Met-Enkephalin
Met-EnkephalinImmunohistochemical detection of Met-Enkephalin in rat spinal cord (central canal) fixed with 4% formaldehyde and cut into 10 μm thick cryostat sections. Tissue was incubated with rabbit polyclonal antibody to Met-Enkephalin at 10 μg/mL overnight at 4°C followed by incubation with Donkey anti-rabbit Rhodamine Red conjugated secondary antibodies at 1:200. Tissue was counterstained with DAPI (blue color) to visualize cell nuclei.

Function: MeT-Enkephalin is an endogenous opioid peptide that interacts with opioid receptors and produces analgesic effects.
Applications: Recommended for Immunohistochemistry (IHC), Cytochemistry (ICC) and RIA.
Working Dilution for Immunofluorescence (ICC): 5 – 15 µg/mL
Working Dilution for Immunohistochemistry (IHC): 5 – 10 µg/mL
IHC Positive control: Brain (spinal cord, dorsal root ganglia).
Specificity: Confirmed by RIA against the synthetic peptide.
Cross-reactivity: Human; mouse; rat. Met-Enkephalin is a highly conserved molecule, so cross-reactivity with other species is expected. Cross-reactivity with other opioid peptides is as follows: with Leu-enkephalin 5.8%; with beta-lipotropin 0.01%; with beta-endorphin 0.01%.
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.
