|Alternative name||Chromogranin A|
|Immunogen||Purified C-terminal half of chromogranin A from urine of patients with carcinoid syndrome.|
|Specificity||Chromogranin A is a 439 amino acid protein present in secretory granules of a wide variety of endocrine cells and neurons. A positive staining is seen in the secretory granules of parathyroid, adrenal medulla, anterior pituitary gland and Langerhans islets of pancreas. This antibody stains a variety of neuroendocrine tumors.|
|Application Notes||Staining Protocol: We suggest an incubation period of 30 minutes at room temperature. However, depending upon the fixation conditions and the staining system employed, optimal incubation should be determined by the user. Suitable for formalin/paraffin tissues. Positive Control: Pancreas. Cellular localization: Cytoplasmic|
