Recognizes a polypeptide which is identified as insulin, a 51-amino acid polypeptide composed of A and B chains connected through the C-peptide. Proinsulin, which has very little biological activity, is cleaved by proteases within its cell of origin into the insulin molecule and the C-terminal basic residue. Insulin enhances membrane transport of glucose, amino acids, and certain ions. It also promotes glycogen storage, formation of triglycerides, and synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids. Deficiency of insulin results in diabetes mellitus. The main storage site for insulin is the pancreatic islets. Antibodies to insulin are important as beta-cell and insulinoma marker.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed): 1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95C followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes. Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
6 kDa. Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

FAQs for Insulin Antibody (NBP2-45108). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQ).
Will you please recommend me antibodies to insulin, the most suitable for immunohistochemistry in the pancreas of guinea pigs? Desirable to be conjugated with some pigment and there was no need for secondary antibodies.
I have carried out a search and the best antibody I recommend is NB600-1488. This is a primary unconjugated antibody however and you will need a secondary. If you click on the product link and then click on related products, a list of all recommended secondary antibodies will appear.
