*Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the researcher.
|1-2μg/ml for 30 minutes at RT
Staining of formalin-fixed tissues require heating tissue sections in 1mM EDTA buffer, pH 7.5-8.5, for 45 min at 95ºC followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes.
Not tested in other applications.
Recognizes a single protein of 33-34kDa, identified as the prostate specific antigen (PSA). This MAb is highly specific to PSA and stains prostatic secretory and ductal epithelium in both normal and neoplastic tissues.
10mM PBS, 0.05% BSA, 0.05% sodium azide (Please contact us for PBS only format)
Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Kallikreins are a subgroup of serine proteases having diverse physiological functions. Growing evidence suggests that many kallikreins are implicated in carcinogenesis and some have potential as novel cancer and other disease biomarkers. This gene is one of the fifteen kallikrein subfamily members located in a cluster on chromosome 19. Its protein product is a protease present in seminal plasma. It is thought to function normally in the liquefaction of seminal coagulum, presumably by hydrolysis of the high molecular mass seminal vesicle protein. Serum level of this protein, called PSA in the clinical setting, is useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of prostatic carcinoma. Alternate splicing of this gene generates several transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
