CACNG8 Blocking Peptide (#BLP-CC125) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-CACNG8 Antibody (#ACC-125) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-CACNG8 primary antibody, this makes it a good negative reagent control to help confirm antibody specificity in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. This control is also often called a pre-adsorption control.
