A synthetic peptide to internal region of human Odorant binding protein (OBP) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the antigen.
Aphrodisin, Odorant binding protein, OBP
FUNCTION: Aphrodisin is a glycoprotein originally isolated from hamster vaginal discharge which was demonstrated to be involved in pheromonal effects on male hamsters. It selectively binds odorants and may be involved in carrying odorants within the nasal epithelium to putative olfactory receptors.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted
Tissue specificity: Strongly expressed in genital sphere organs such as the prostate and mammary glands.
Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
12 months after reconstitution
This item will be shipped to you at ambient temperature in a lyophilised form.
