Rat anti Human Somatostatin antibody, clone YC7 recognizes somatostatin, a hormone involved in endocrine system regulation through interactions with pituitary growth hormone, thyroid stimulating hormone, and a number of hormones of the gastrointestinal tract. Somatostatin has active 14 amino acid and 28 amino acid forms, produced by alternate cleavage of the gene product.

This antibody does not cross react with enkephalins, other endorphins, substance P, or CGRP. It partially cross reacts with somatostatin fragments.

The epitope recognized by this antibody lies within the 1-14 amino acid sequence of cyclic somatostatin.

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.
