Immunogen
Purified Recombinant Human FGF-17 (>98%)
Endotoxin Level
< 10 ng/mg as determined by the LAL method
Formulation
This antigen affinity purified polyclonal 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.
State of Matter
Lyophilized
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for twelve months from date of receipt. 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.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Western Blotting: To detect Human FGF-17 this polyclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. This polyclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:G505 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Human FGF-17 is 5 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. A suitable Western blotting control is PN:F126.
Additional Applications Reported In Literature ?
Neutralization: This antibody is useful for neutralization of Human FGF-17 bioactivity. The antibody dose required to neutralize 50% (ND50) of the biological activity of Human FGF-17 (at 100 ng/ml) is 6 - 24 µg/ml.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.

Description

Specificity
Rabbit Anti-Human Fibroblast Growth Factor-17 (FGF-17) recognizes Human FGF-17. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Background
Fibroblast growth factor 17, also known as FGF17 is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF-17 is most similar to FGF-8 and is highly conserved between mouse and human (93 % identity).1,2 FGF17 is required for several complex social behaviors and studies suggest that disturbances in FGF17 signaling may contribute to neuropsychiatric diseases that affect such behaviors.3
