Gene Information

human ... CALCA(796)

Specificity

CGRP (Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide).

Immunogen

A 14 amino acid synthetic peptide from rat CGRP I (processed active peptide). The immunogen sequence is identical at 13 of 14 residues between rat/mouse CGRP I and CGRP II. {KDNFVPTNVGSEAF-NH2}

Application

Immunohistochemistry: 1:500 See Protocol below.

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.



AB5705 has been used successfully on perfusion fixed tissue. Perfusion: 1) Ca2+-free Tyrode′s solution followed by 2) a paraformaldehyde-picric acid fixative and 3) 10% sucrose in PBS as a cryo-protectant. Tissues were rapidly dissected out and stored overnight in 0.1 M phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) containing 10% sucrose.Slide-mounted tissue sections were incubated with blocking buffer for 1 hour at room temperature. Primary antibody was diluted in blocking buffer to the appropriate working dilution. Blocking buffer was removed and the slides were then incubated at 2-8°C for 18-24 hours with AB5705. After rinsing in PBS 3 times sections were incubated for 60 minutes at room temperature with Cy3-conjugated secondary antibodies. After mounting in a mixture of PBS and glycerol (1:3) containing 0.1% p-phenylenediamine, sections were examined with a Nikon Microphot-SA epifluorescence microscope.
