Immunogen A synthetic scrambled peptide form of human Cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide (CAP-18, hCAP-18, antibacterial protein LL-37, CAMP, CRAMP, FALL39) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein has been used as the antigen.
Specificity Specific for scrambled form of Cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide (ie the antigen).
Purification Whole serum
Background Cathelicidin antimicrobial protein is an antimicrobial protein found in specific granules of polymorphonuclear leukocytes.
Function: Binds to bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS), has antibacterial activity.
Subcellular location: Secreted.
Tissue specificity: Expressed in bone marrow and testis and neutrophils. Also known as: CAMP, CAP18, FALL39, FALL-39, 18 kDa cationic antimicrobial protein, CAP-18, hCAP-18, LL37, CRAMP, HSD26.
Application Notes Use at a dilution of 1:100 to 1: 2000.
The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Lyophilized
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 150 µL of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Handling Advice Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Storage 4 °C/-20 °C
Storage Comment Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months
