    • Rabbit anti Human Follistatin antibody recognizes human follistatin (FST), a single-chain glycosylated secreted protein of gonadal origin, originally identified as an antagonist of activin and suppressor of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) synthesis/secretion.

      As well as activin, FST interacts with and inhibits other members of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) superfamily, such as bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) -2, -4 and -7, myostatin and growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF-9), making FST a key regulator in development and regeneration processes.
    • Intended Use
    • Target Species
    • Product Form
      Purified IgG - lyophilised
    • Reconstitution
      Reconstitute with 0.1ml distilled water
      Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
      N.B. For functional studies do not add sodium azide
    • Preparation
    • Antiserum Preparation
      Antisera to human follistatin were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared from whole serum by affinity chromatography.
    • Preservative Stabilisers
      None present.
    • Immunogen
      Recombinant human follistatin
    • Purity
    • Approx. Protein Concentrations

    • Storage
      Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC.
      After reconstitution store at -20oC.
      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.
    • Shelf Life
      12 months from date of reconstitution.
