Purified Recombinant Human HGF R (>98%)
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
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.
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
Flow Cytometry: It is recommended to use the indirect method for signal enhancement when enumerating cells expressing HGF R. A suggested method would be to stain cells expressing HGF R with v6 cells in a total staining volume of 100 µl followed by PN:G641.
Western Blotting: To detect Human HGF R 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 HGF R 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:H1476.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
IHC (NBF/Par.): This antibody should give satisfactory staining results when used at a concentration of 10 µg/ml. The recommended secondary antibody for IHC is PN:G505. For chromogenic detection with high signal and low background use PN:D100 or PN:K107.Blocking: Blockade of receptor-ligand interaction - Approximately 0.5-2 μg/ml of thisantibody will block 50% of the binding of 5 ng/ml of recombinant human HGF to immobilized recombinant human HGF R/Fc chimera (100 μl of a 1 μg/ml solution was coated in each well) in a functional ELISA.
Immunocytochemistry: Suitable for use at concentration of 5-15 µg/mL.
CyTOF-ready: Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Goat Anti-Human Hepatocyte Growth Factor Receptor (HGF R) recognizes Human HGF R. 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.
Hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR), also known as c-Met, plays an important roles in angiogenesis and tumor growth.1 C-Met is a receptor tyrosine kinase expressed by epithelial cells of the brain, kidney, liver and other tissues. Binding of its ligand, Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF), triggers receptor autophosphorylation, and activation of several downstream effectors including the mitogen-activated protein kinases ERK-1 and ERK-2, and PLC-γ. Activation of the c-Met signal transduction pathway leads to mulitple cellular responses including cell motility, scattering, proliferation, survival and angiogenesis.2,3
