Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human Procalcitonin by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Procalcitonin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of TT human medullary thyroid cancer cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Procalcitonin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB83501) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Procalcitonin at approximately 15 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunohistochemistry Procalcitonin in Human Thyroid. View Larger

Procalcitonin in Human Thyroid. Procalcitonin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human thyroid using Mouse Anti-Human Procalcitonin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB83501) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and cell surfaces. View our protocol for IHC Staining with VisUCyte HRP Polymer Detection Reagents.

Human Procalcitonin ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Human Procalcitonin protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Mouse Anti-Human Procalcitonin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB83502) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (Catalog # DY990). Mouse Anti-Human Procalcitonin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB83501) was biotinylated and incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (Catalog # DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (Catalog # DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (Catalog # DY994).

Background: Procalcitonin

Human Procalcitonin (CALCA and Calcitonin) is 141 amino acids (aa) in length member of the calcitonin family. Precursor protein is cleaved into a propeptide and the following 2 chains: Calcitonin (aa 85-116) and Katacalcin (aa 121-141). Antigen used to develop this antibody is correspondent to the propeptide part of the precursor molecule. Secreted Calcitonin is known to cause a rapid but short-lived drop in the level of calcium and phosphate in blood by promoting the incorporation of those ions in the bones. Over aa 26-38, human Procalcitonin shares 64% aa identity with mouse Procalcitonin.
