Immunogen Polyclonal antibody produced in rabbits immunizing with a synthetic peptide corresponding to C-terminal residues of human A2M (Alpha-2-macroglobulin precursor)
Purification Purified by antigen-specific affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name A2M (A2M Antibody Abstract)
Background A2M(Alpha-2-macroglobulin is able to inhibit all four classes of proteinases by a unique trapping mechanism. This protein has a peptide stretch, called the `bait region' which contains specific cleavage sites for different proteinases. When a proteinase cleaves the bait region, a conformational change is induced in the protein which traps the proteinase. The entrapped enzyme remains active against low molecular weight substrates (activity against high molecular weight substrates is greatly reduced). Following cleavage in the bait region a thiolester bond is hydrolyzed and mediates the covalent binding of the protein to the proteinase.
Application Notes ELISA, Western blotting: 1µg/ml for 2hrs.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Liquid
Buffer This antibody is stored in PBS, 50% glycerol
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use This product contains sodium azide: a POISONOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE which should be handled by trained staff only.
Storage -20 °C
