This is an antibody preparation generated in rabbit by Dr. William North Professor of Physiology and Neurobiology of Dartmouth Medical School (now Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College) using a synthetic peptide representing the last 18 C-terminal residues of the 39 amino acid glycopeptide, coupled to bovine thyroglobulin as antigen.

Specificity: No measureable reactivity with rat or mouse copeptin, no measureable reactivity with vasopressin or human vasopressin-related neurophysin.

Tested applications                          IHC-formaldehyde-fixed tissues, Flow Cytometry, RIA, ELISA
