E. coli-Derived Recombinant Human ANG (Accession # P03950)
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Western Blotting: To detect Human ANG this monoclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 1-2 µg/ml. This monoclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:M114 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Human ANG is 20 ng/lane under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used.
ELISA Capture: Suitable for use at concentration of 2-8 µg/mL. Use in combination with: Detection Reagent: Human Angiogenin Biotinylated Antibody. Standard: Recombinant Human Angiogenin Protein.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Mouse Anti-Human Angiogenin (ANG) (Clone 14017) recognizes an epitope on Human ANG. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
Angiogenin (Ang) is a small polypeptide that is implicated in angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) in tumor growth . However, angiogenin is unique among the many proteins that are involved in angiogenesis in that it is also an enzyme with an amino acid sequence 33% identical to that of bovine pancreatic ribonuclease (RNase). Moreover, although Ang has the same general catalytic properties as RNase A - it cleaves preferentially on the 3' side of pyrimidines and follows a transphosphorylation/hydrolysis mechanism - its activity differs markedly both in magnitude and in specificity. Although angiogenin contains counterparts for the key catalytic residues of bovine pancreatic RNase A, it cleaves standard RNase substrates 105 - 106 times less efficiently than does RNase A. Despite this apparent weakness, the enzymatic activity of Ang appears to be essential for biological activity: replacements of important active site residues invariably diminish ribonuclease and angiogenesis activities in parallel, and a substitution that increases enzymatic activity also enhances angiogenic potency. Angiogenin may function as a tRNA-specific ribonuclease that binds to actin on the surface of endothelial cells; once bound, angiogenin is endocytosed and translocated to the nucleus, thereby promoting the endothelial invasiveness necessary for blood vessel formation. Angiogenin induces vascularization of normal and malignant tissues, and abolishes protein synthesis by specifically hydrolyzing cellular tRNAs. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants encoding the same protein. This gene and the gene that encodes ribonuclease, RNase A family, 4 share promoters and 5' exons. Each gene splices to a unique downstream exon that contains its complete coding region.
