Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-PPY 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.
Applications Tested/Suitable for anti-PPY antibody
Peptide ELISA (EIA), Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
Application Notes for anti-PPY antibody
Peptide ELISA: Antibody detection limit dilution 1: 32000.
Immunohistochemistry: In paraffin embedded human pancreas, shows strong cytoplasmic staining of rare cells located at the periphery of islets of Langerhans. Recommended concentration, 3ug/ml. An anonymous customer found positive results in IHC on Mouse pancreas.
Western Blot: Preliminary experiments gave an approx 35-38kDa band in human pancreas lysates after 1ug/ml antibody staining. Please note that currently we cannot find an explanation in the literature for the band we observe given the calculated size of 10.5kDa according to NP_002713.1. The 38kDa band was successfully blocked by incubation with the immunizing peptide.

NCBI Summary for PPY
This gene encodes a member of the neuropeptide Y (NPY) family of peptides. The encoded 95 aa preproprotein is synthesized in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans and proteolytically processed to generate two peptide products. These products include the active pancreatic hormone of 36 aa and an icosapeptide of unknown function. This hormone acts as a regulator of pancreatic and gastrointestinal functions and may be important in the regulation of food intake. Plasma level of this hormone has been shown to be reduced in conditions associated with increased food intake and elevated in anorexia nervosa. In addition, infusion of this hormone in obese rodents has shown to decrease weight gain. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, at least one of which encodes an isoform that is proteolytically processed. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]
