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.Cross reactivity profile:
|Human growth hormone 22 kDa||100%|
|Human placental growth hormone||100%|
|Human growth hormone 20 kDa ||50%|
|Methionyl human growth hormone||0.5%|
|Growth hormone receptor||0.3%|
|Human placental lactogen||0.002%|
|Human thyroid stimulating hormone ||0%|
|Human chorionic gonadotropin||0%|
|Human luteinizing hormone||0%|
|Human follicle stimulating hormone ||0%|
|Horse growth hormone||0.007%|
|Bovine growth hormone||0%|
|Pig growth hormone||0%|
