Calretinin antibody - 214 111BT

Calretinin is a vitamin D-dependent calcium binding protein
Mouse monoclonal purified IgG
Cat. No.: 214 111BT
Amount: 100 µg
Price: $465.00
Cat. No. 214 111BT 100 µg purified IgG, lyophilized, labeled with Biotin.

Biotin is a small vitamin B complex molecule. Its small size minimizes interference with antibody binding sites and allows for efficient conjugation without compromising antibody functionality.
Biotin conjugated antibodies can be easily detected with Avidin/Streptavidin based secondary detection systems.
The streptavidin-biotin bond is one of the strongest non-covalent biological bonds known.

For reconstitution add 100 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in PBS. Then aliquot and store at -20°C to -80°C until use.
Antibodies should be stored at +4°C when still lyophilized. Do not freeze!

Two isoforms of the the vitamin D-dependent Ca-binding proteins have been described so far: Calretinin, also referred to as calbindin D29k, calbindin 2, CALB 2, CAL 2, and CAB 29, and calbindin D28k. These proteins are expressed in cells that have to handle a high calcium influx such as brain, bone, teeth, inner ear and others. Calbindins are believed to regulate cellular activity by suppressing or buffering intracellur calcium.
