The Somatostatin family of receptors have five members, sst1-sst5, as well as two isoforms of Somatostatin receptor 2, sst2A and sst2B. They are coupled to G protein and are involved in regulation of numerous processes including secretion of insulin, glucagons and growth hormone and excitation of neurons in central and peripheral nervous system.
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry (Fr) (paraffin-embedded sections). Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive Control: Pancreas
Cellular Localization: Cytoplasmic
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
