MC1 Receptor Blocking Peptide (#BLP-MR020) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-MC1 Receptor Antibody (#AMR-020) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-MC1 Receptor 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.
