Data Examples
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.

Background: Procalcitonin

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.
