Spermine, a polyamine, is a positively charged compound found in living cells and can cause conformational changes in DNA via charge and solubility mechanisms which can affect gene expression cell differentiation. Spermine may be linked to the development of cancer.
Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
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.
