Function: Neurotensin is a neuropeptide which regulates secretion of luteinizing hormone and prolactin. Involved in dopamine neurotransmission.
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: Brainstem medulla.
Specificity: Confirmed by RIA against the synthetic peptide.
Cross-reactivity: Human, mouse, rat. Highly conservative and expected to interact with bovine, feline and monkey.
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.
