TRPM7 Blocking Peptide (#BLP-CC047) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-TRPM7 Antibody (#ACC-047) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-TRPM7 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.
- Western blot analysis of rat GH3 pituitary tumor cell line (lanes 1 and 2) and mouse brain (lanes 3 and 4) lysates:
- Expression of TRPM7 in rat pituitary glandImmunohistochemical staining of rat hypophysis paraffin embedded transversal sections using Anti-TRPM7 Antibody (#ACC-047), (1:50). TRPM7 is stained in both the posterior part or neurohypophysis (N) and the anterior part or adenohypophysis (A). Note that stain is highly specific for andocrine cells in the adenohypophysis. Color reaction was obtained with SuperPicture HRP-conjugated polymer (Zymed) followed by DAB. Hematoxilin is used as the Counterstain.
