Metallothioneins (MTs) are a class of ubiquitous, low molecular weight, cysteine-rich, metal binding proteins that function in the metabolism of zinc and copper. MT protects against exposure to toxic metals such as mercury and cadmium as well as a variety of other stress conditions. There are four mammalian MT isoforms: MT-I, -II, -III, -IV, each of which is encoded by individual genes. MT expression is induced by heavy metal cations, starvation, elevated temperature, lipopolysaccharide, inflammatory cytokines, free radicals, and ionizing radiation.

FAQs for metallothionein Antibody (NBP1-97493). (Showing 1 - 3 of 3 FAQs).

  1. Can you please confirm whether the following item can be recommended for IF?
    • I can confirm that this antibody has not been tested for use in IF. If you would be interested in testing this novel application, please take a look at our Innovators Reward Program.
  2. Our customer would like to perform ELISA with NBP1-97493. Would you please help suggest the suitable protein product (Human preferred) to work with NBP1-97493 as the positive control or standard?
    • This antibody reacts to Metallothionein 1 and 2. Any of these Metallothionein 1 or 2 recombinant proteins should be suitable as a positive control.
  3. Would you be able to give me details about how the example blot on the datasheet was run? (what percentage gel? what type of gel? what type of block?)
    • Indicated amounts of protein were denatured by boiling in 10% SDS buffer (10% w/v SDS; 0.5 M Tris-HCL, pH 6.8, 5% [v/v] 2-mercaptoethanol; 5% [v/v] glycerol), resolved by electrophoresis on 12% SDS-polyacrylamide gels and transferred (60 V for a half hour in 12 mM Tris-HCL, 96 mM glycine, 15% methanol) to nitrocellulose filters. The resulting blots were blocked overnight in Superblock (Pierce, Rock-ford, IL). The blot was washed three times with PBS over 15 minutes, incubated with a 1:200 dilution of mouse anti-MT antibody, and washed three times in PBS containing 0.1% Tween 20. Immunoreactive MT was visualized using ECL Western blotting reagents (Amersham-Pharmacia, Piscataway, NJ).
