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.

ANTI-Bombesin/Gasrin releasing peptide  (polyclonal)
Polyclonal Antibody to Bombesin/GRP

Cat#RDI-PRO16004   $312.00

Category                  Rabbit polyclonal

Form/Purification     Prediluted rabbit serum (lyoph.)

Immunogen               Bombesin (#7113, Peninsula), conjugated to BSA

Description/Specificity:  Bombesin is an amphibian peptide and the mammalian counterpart is referred to as Gastrin Releasing Peptide (GRP). Bombesin/GRP is widely distributed in the brain, in peripheral nerves (particularly numerous in the gut) and in endocrine cells of some sub-mammalian species, e.g. in the oxyntic mucosa of birds. The peptide stimulates secretion from endocrine and exocrine cells and intestinal smooth muscle activity. Bombesin/GRP occurs frequently in the bronchial carcinoids.

Absorption with 10-100 µg bombesin and GRP per ml diluted antiserum abolishes the staining.

Positive Control Formalin-fixed paraffin and frozen sections of rat or chicken stomach

Species tested so far              Human, rat, chicken

Application · Immunohistochemistry

                     · Suitable for frozen and paraffin sections

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

Working Dilution 1:5 - 1:10 using PAP with overnight incubation at 2-8°C.

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