Western blot - Use at 1:500 dilution. However, the investigator should determine the optimal dilution for a specific application such as immunohistochemistry.
Reacts with residues 20-35 [VKRLESPNKTRRPYGA] of the Rattin peptide, which is not in the conserved region to Humanin.
PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.
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.
1 mg/ml (Please refer to the vial label for the specific concentration.)

A novel rat gene, Rattin, encodes a peptide homologous to Humanin, a secreted peptide that specifically protects against neuronal cell death induced by beta-amyloid peptide (Ab) or by mutations causing early-onset familial Alzheimer's disease. Rattin is the prototype of a novel class of peptides, phylogenetically related to Humanin, endowed with protective activity not only against Ab but also toward excitotoxic neuronal death. The rat gene, Rattin, encodes a peptide of 38 residues (15 residues longer than Humanin) showing 73% identity in the conserved region to Humanin.
