Rabbit anti Human ACTH antibody recognizes human adrenocorticotrophic hormone, also known as corticotrophin. ACTH is a 4.5 kDa hormone derived from cleavage of pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), produced in the pituitary gland in response to corticotrophin releasing hormone (CRH) activity and functions to stimulate release of adrenal cortisol.

Rabbit anti Human ACTH polyclonal antibody is directed against the N-terminal portion of adrenocorticotrophic hormone and also recognizes the ACTH cleavage fragment α-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH), responsible for melanin pigmentation control in most vertebrate species (Fiordelisio et al. 2006). Rabbit anti Human ACTH does not recognize the C-terminal ACTH cleavage product, corticotropin-like intermediary peptide (CLIP).

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.
