  ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.


Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide Antibodies (see 5 antibodies below)


Polyclonal Antibody to CGRP  (Calcitonin gene-related peptide)

Cat#RDI-PRO16012   $625.00

Category                      Rabbit polyclonal

Form/Purification        Undiluted rabbit serum (lyoph.)

Immunogen                  Calcitonin gene-related peptide, rat

Description/Specificity The CGRP-sequence was predicted from the corresponding mRNA. CGRP is present in the C-cells of the thyroid and in nerves, in both brain and periphery, particularly within the sensory system. CGRP is a potent vasodilator, probably involved in neurogenic inflammation. Medullary carcinomas of the thyroid contain large amounts of CGRP. Absorption with 10 - 100 µg CGRP per ml diluted antiserum abolishes the staining while calcitonin does not.

Does not cross-react with amylin (IAPP)

Positive Control               Frozen sections of rat colon

Species tested so far        Mouse, rat

Application · Immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence · Suitable for paraffin and frozen sections

Reconstitution             Dissolve the antiserum in 50 - 100 µl distilled water, and dilute further in 0.1 M PBS with 1% BSA and 0.1% NaN3.

Working Dilution 1:1000 - 1:2000 using PAP

                             1:400 - 1:800 using immunofluorescence microscopy with overnight incubation at 2-8°C.

Storage                 At 2-8°C (lyoph.) or at -20°C (aliquots)

Quantity /             Volume 50 µl (lyoph.)
