Rabbit anti Human calcitonin antibody recognizes calcitonin, also known as CALCA or alpha-type CGRP.

CALCA gene encodes the peptide hormones calcitonin, calcitonin gene-related peptide and katacalcin by tissue-specific alternative RNA splicing of the gene transcripts and cleavage of inactive precursor proteins. Calcitonin is involved in calcium regulation and acts to regulate phosphorus metabolism. Calcitonin gene-related peptide functions as a vasodilator while katacalcin is a calcium-lowering peptide. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for CALCA (provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009).

Rabbit anti Human calcitonin antibody detects a band of 17 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
