Activin-A Antibody

Activins are homodimers or heterodimers of the different β subunit isoforms, part of the TGFβ family. Mature Activin A has two 116 amino acids residues βA subunits (βA-βA). Activin displays an extensive variety of biological activities, including mesoderm induction, neural cell differentiation, bone remodelling, haematopoiesis, and reproductive physiology. Activins takes part in the production and regulation of hormones such as FSH, LH, GnRH and ACTH. Cells that are identified to express Activin A include fibroblasts, endothelial cells, hepatocytes, vascular smooth muscle cells, macrophages, keratinocytes, osteoclasts, bone marrow monocytes, prostatic epithelium, neurons, chondrocytes, osteoblasts, Leydig cells, Sertoli cells, and ovarian granulosa cells.

Products specifications
Solubility Add 0.1 ml of distilled water and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely.
Applications Activin-A antibody has been tested by ELISA and Western blot analysis to assure specificity and reactivity. Since application varies, however, each investigation should be titrated by the reagent to obtain optimal results. In order to detect Human Activin A by indirect ELISA a dilution of at least 1:1,000 of the Activin A antibody is required. Activin A antibody, in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents (anti rabbit AP conjugated), allows the detection of 0.2-1 ng /well of Human Activin A. In order to detect human Activin A by WB analysis this IgG can be used in a dilution of 1:1,000.
Synonyms Inhba, Inhibin beta A, FSH releasing protein.
Reagent Appearance Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Type Polyclonal Rabbit Antibody.
Immunogen Recombinant human Activin-A produced in plants.
Purification Method Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on protein G.
Protein formulation Lyophilized from a sterile filtered (0.2um) solution containing phosphate buffered saline.
