Mouse anti hGH, Clone 5B4, recognises human growth hormone, also known as somatotropin, a polypeptide synthesised by acidophilic or somatotropic cells of the anterior pituitary gland. It exists as several isoforms, including a ~20 kDa and ~22 kDa variant. Growth hormone plays an important role in growth and cell production.

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
