Detection of Human Procalcitonin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human thyroid cancer tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Procalcitonin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8350) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Procalcitonin at approximately 15-16 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Human Procalcitonin (CALCA and Calcitonin) is 141 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 and Calcitonin 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 26-117, human Procalcitonin shares 80% aa identity with mouse Procalcitonin.
