[F01] FITC-conjugated Goat Anti-Human AlbuminAL10F-G1a
|Concentration:||1 mg/ml (OD 1.35 / 280 nm)|
|Buffer:||75 mM Sodium Phosphate, 75 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM EDTA, 0.02% NaN3, pH 7.2|
Specifically binds to human albumin. Molar F/P ratio is 4.9. The investigator should determine working dilutions.
|Use:||The antibody can be used for detection of human albumin in plasma and lipoproteins, immunoassays, immunoblots, enzyme conjugation, or biotinylation.|
|Storage:||-20°C for long-term storage, 4°C for short- term storage. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Form:||Freeze dried powder|
|Stabilizer:||5 mg / ml Bovine Serum Albumin.|
Freeze-dried product should be stored refrigerated until opened. After opening, restore to suggested ml volume with distilled water. If it is not completely clear after standing for 1-2 hours at room temperature, centrifuge the product. It is stable for several weeks at 4°C as an undiluted liquid. Do not use for more than one day after dilution. For extended storage after reconstitution, we suggest aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing; or the addition of an equal volume of glycerol to make a final glycerol concentration of 50%, followed by storage at -20°C. The concentration of protein and buffer salts will decrease to one-half of the original after the addition of glycerol.

Human albumin constitutes around 55% of the protein present in the plasma of normal healthy individuals. It is a single polypeptide chain of 585 amino acids with a molecular weight of 66 kDa.
The functions of human serum albumin include maintaining oncotic pressure; binding substances or drugs; regulating endogenous substances, metabolism; plasma buffer; antioxidant function; maintaining microvascular integrity; anticoagulant effects; inflammatory/anti-inflammatory effects; cell-signaling process. (Nicholson et al., 2000; Evans, 2002) Albumin also has functions that may play a critical role and have a great impact on different types of diseases, including hypo-albumin aemia and peripheral oedema.
