|Alternative Name||Insulin (INS Antibody Abstract)|
|Background||Insulin is one of the major regulatory hormones of intermediate metabolism throughout the body. The biological actions of this hormone involve integration of carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism. Insulin enhances membrane transport of glucose, amino acids, and certain ions. It also promotes glycogen storage, formation of triglycerides and synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids. Immunocytochemical investigations have localized insulin in the B cells of pancreatic islets of Langerhans. Deficiency of insulin results in diabetes mellitus, one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the general population. Insulin is also present in tumors of B cell origin such as insulinoma.Synonyms: INS|

ELISA. Immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin sections: proteolytic treatment is notrequired, optimal results have been obtained by using the autoclave or microwave retrievalmethod (with citrate buffer). For immunohistochemistry dilute 1: 50 - 1: 100 (with PBS or TBS immediately before use),based on the indirect method, with a normal ABC method the dilution can be up to 5xhigher when using the microwave retrieval method. Recommended positive control: Pancreas.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
