Elastin, humanCatalog number: EL25011
Elastin is the major protein of elastic fibres that form a randomly orientated network in many tissues. Due to its high content of hydrophobic amino acids it is relatively resistant to chemicals and proteinase. Its principal function is to provide elasticity to tissues, however it has also chemotactic and cell adhesion properties. Human elastin, cross-reactivity in RIA at 1:500 dilution: human collagen type I, II, III, IV, V <0.1 %; human fibronectin < 0.1%.
Immunogen: Purified elastin from human skin
Affinity purified antibody lyophilized from phosphate buffered solution; no BSA and preservative added!
Purification Method: Prot A affinity purified antibody lyophilized from phosphate buffered solution; no BSA and preservative added!
Secondary Reagents: Anti-rabbit IgG-conjugates
Concentration: app. 1 mg/ml
Species Reactivity: Human, cross-reaction with rat < 0.1%
IFA, IHC(P), ELISA, RIA
Incubation Time: IHC(P) 60 min at RT or 2-8°C over night
Working Concentration: (purified, lyophilized) IFA ? 1:80, IHC(P) ? 1:500, ELISA ? 1:200 (OD ? 500)
Pre-Treatment: After de-waxing the tissue slices they are treated with 0.2% hyaluronidase (app. 300 U/mg e.g. Art. No. HYA02-50) in TBS 15 min at 37°C. There after non-specific binding is blocked by blocking serum or 3% BSA in TBS. For peroxidase systems blocking with 1% peroxide solution in TBS for 30 min at RT is recommended.
Positive Control: Human skin or aorta
