Background informationThe galanin family of proteins are key members for inflammatory processes and cell proliferation, and may function as potential biomarkers for colon cancer. Produced in both neuronal and nonneuronal cells in the skin, members of the galanin family include galanin, galanin-message associated peptide, galanin-like peptide and alarin. GALP, also known as galanin-like peptide, is a 116 amino acid secreted protein belonging to the galanin family. Mainly produced in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus (ARC) and the posterior pituitary, GALP is thought to function in CNS homeostatic processes, including the regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone secretion. GALP binds to the G-protein coupled galanin receptors, including GALR1, GALR2 and GALR3, and may also play a role in energy metabolism, with significant implications towards obesity. GALP exits as two alternatively spliced isoforms.

AdvisoryAvoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
PropertiesFor facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.
ConjugationAlexa Fluor,ALEXA FLUOR® 594

DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
GroupPolyclonals and antibodies
AboutPolyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
