|Cat. No. 301-0P||
100 µg peptide, lyophilized. 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.
Control peptides should be stored at -20°C when still lyophilized!
|Immunogen||Synthetic peptide corresponding to AA 140 to 149 from rat Calmodulin (UniProt Id: P62161)|

This control peptide consists of the synthetic peptide (aa 140-149 in rat calmodulin) that has been used for immunization. It has been tested in preadsorption experiments and blocks efficiently and specifically the corresponding signal in Western blots. The amount of peptide needed for efficient blocking depends on the titer and on the affinity of the antibody to the antigen.
Calmodulin (CaM) is an ubiquitously expressed 17 kDa protein which mediates many essential Ca-dependent physiological processes. For instance, in neurons it is involved in the regulation of synaptic transmission. Calmodulin belongs to a family of structurally homologous Ca-binding proteins, e.g. troponin C, parvalbumin and S100.
