Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a 28-amino-acid peptide belonging to the secretin-glucagon family of peptide hormones. Its sequence is identical in man, ox, pig and rat. VIP is widely distributed in the central and peripheral nervous systems, acting as a neurotransmitter or neuromodulator. Peripherally it is involved in vaso- and bronchodilatation, smooth muscle relaxation and stimulation of secretion. Ectopic endocrine tumors secreting VIP (VIPomas) give rise to raised plasma levels of VIP and are associated with watery diarrhea, hypokalemia and achlorhydria syndrome. VIP shows high sequence homology with peptide histidine-methionine (PHM) in man or peptide histidine-serine (PHI) in pigs or rats, present in the same precursor, and with the neuropeptide pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP).

FAQs for VIP Antibody (NBP1-05163). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQ).
I am interested in the NBP1-05163, your anti-VIP mAb. I noticed that the mAb has been tested in a variety of applications, but I'm curious if you are aware of it being used in mice, and more importantly in flow cytometry and IF?
In regards to your inquiry unfortunately this antibody has only been tested in ELISA and we have not tested it in Flow cytometry or IF. Due to this antibody being of a mouse host we have not tested on mouse samples due to high background potential. Unfortunately we do not have any samples we can provide, but we do have our Innovator's Reward if you wish to test this in untested species or applications. If you would like to test this antibody in an untested species and/or application and share your results with us, then I can recommend our Innovators Reward Program.
