Alternative Name Myostatin (MSTN Antibody Abstract)
Background Myostatin (GDF-8), a member of the TGFbeta superfamily, is a potent and specific negative regulator of skeletal muscle mass. In serum, myostatin circulates as part of a latent complex containing myostatin propeptide and/or follistatin-related gene. The myostatin propeptide is known to bind and inhibit myostatin in vitro. This interaction is relevant in vivo, with a majority (>70 % ) of myostatin in serum bound to its propeptide. The myostatin propeptide is negative regulator of myostatin in vivo.Synonyms: GDF-8, GDF8, Growth differentiation factor 8, MSTN

Application Notes Suitable for ELISA: Titer is defined by indirect ELISA, it is: > 1/100,000 for antibodyconcentration 1 mg/mL, 25 ng of antigen are coated per well, and is then defined at a pointof maximal decrease of the titration curve.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Reconstitution Add 0.05 mL of deionized water and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. Slight turbidity may occur after reconstitution, which does not affect activity of the antibody. In this case clarify the solution by centrifugation.
Concentration 1.0 mg/mL
Buffer 0.05 M phosphate buffer, 0.1 M NaCl, pH 7.2 containing no preservatives.
Preservative Without preservative
Handling Advice Avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Storage -20 °C
Storage Comment Store (in aliquots) at -20° C or below.
