Welcome to Woomera Therapeutics!

Rabbit Human Copeptin  Antibodies (Vasopressin-Associated Glycopeptide, VAG), BORIS Y.

Rabbit Human Copeptin Antibodies (BORIS Y)

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
