Long description: This anitbody is made to an epitope that is reported to block the PCSK9-LDLR (low density lipoprotein receptor) interaction. PCSK9 binds to the EGF-A domain of the LDLR and signals LDLR degradation. Reduced LDLR levels result in decreased LDL (low density lipid) metabolism leading to hypercholesterolemia. _x000B__x000B_Additioanlly, PCSK9 may be implicated in the differentiation of cortical neurons and may also play a role in cholesterol homeostasis. Defects in PCSK9 gene are the cause of familial hypercholesterolemia 3 (FH3). The protein is thought to play a central role in cholesterol homeostais

Warnings: This product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. This datasheet is as accurate as reasonably achievable, but Nordic-MUbio accepts no liability for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information.

Description: This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.

Properties: If you buy Antibodies supplied by nordc they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.

Test: You can block the antibody by the specific target amino acid sequence of peptide.

About: Rabbits are used for polyclonal antibody production by nordc. Rabbit antibodies are very stable and can be stored for several days at room temperature. nordc adds sodium azide and glycerol to enhance the stability of the rabbit polyclonal antibodies. Anti-human, anti mouse antibodies to highly immunogenic selected peptide sequences are" monoclonal like" since the epitope to which they are directed is less than 35 amino acids long.
