Preparation and Storage
Store at 4 degree C or at -20 degree C if preferred. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.

Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-INS antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
anti-INS antibody
Guinea pig anti Pig insulin antibody recognizes porcine insulin, a hormone secreted by the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas. Insulin belongs to a family of hormones including the insulin-like growth hormones and the relaxins. The insulin precursor is a 108amino acid polypeptide consisting of a 24 aa signal peptide, an insulin A chain, a prohormone polypeptide (also known as the ┬śC chain') and an insulin B chain together having a predicted molecular mass of 11,672 Da. Active insulin migrates with an apparent molecular mass of 6kDa in western blotting of porcine, bovine and lapine samples (Schechter et al. 1992). Insulin is a hormone that functions in carbohydrate homeostasis, and acts to decrease blood glucose concentration by increasing cell permeability to monosaccharides, amino acids and fatty acids, and accelerate glycolysis and glycogen synthesis in the liver, it induces uptake of glucose into cells through its interaction with the glucose transporter GLUT4 (Watson and Pressin 2001). 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 tumours of B-cell origin such as insulinoma (Schiel et al. 2006). Guinea pig anti pig insulin antibody has been successfully used to demonstrate the presence og insulin in the islets of Langerhans of murine pancreas using immunohistochemistry on paraffin embedded material (Ortsäter et al. 2012).
