100 µg peptide, lyophilized. For reconstitution add 100 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in PBS. Then aliquot and store at -20°C to -80°C until use.
Control peptides should be stored at -20°C when still lyophilized!
|Synthetic peptide corresponding to AA 275 to 297 from mouse Chil3 (UniProt Id: O35744)
This control peptide consists of the synthetic peptide (aa 275 - 297 from mouse Chil3) that has been used for immunization. It has been tested in preadsorption experiments and blocks efficiently and specifically the corresponding signal in Western blots. The amount of peptide needed for efficient blocking depends on the titer and on the affinity of the antibody to the antigen.
Chitinase-3-like protein 3, also referred to as Chil 3, Ym1 and ECF-L, is a secreted protein that is primarily produced by macrophages during inflammation. It is only expressed in rodents, but expression profile and domain organization suggest a functional overlap with human AMCase and SI-CLP. Chil 3 has chemotactic activity for eosinophils, T-cells and polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and plays a role in the inflammatory response elicited by parasitic infections, lung disorders and allergy.
This lectin binds chitin, heparin and GlcN oligomers. Although Chil 3 shares homology with chitinase family proteins, it has no enzymatic activity.
