Rat MIP-1 ALPHA Protein
The MIP-1 ALPHA Protein is a α- or alpha protein sometimes glycoprotein present in blood.
For short term storage Rat MIP-1 ALPHA Protein may be kep at +4 deg. C. For long term storage keep the aliquoted vials frozen at -20 degrees Celsius.
Rats are used to make rat monoclonal anti mouse antibodies. There are less rat- than mouse clones however. Rats genes from rodents of the genus Rattus norvegicus are often studied in vivo as a model of human genes in Sprague-Dawley or Wistar rats.
Due to handling and transportation, small amounts of the Rat MIP-1 ALPHA Protein may get caught on the walls or seal of the vials. Prior to use briefly rund the vial(s) through a centrifuge to collect all of the content on the bottom. Avoid freezing and thawing the vials numerous times as such cycles may denaturate the peptide chains and influence the item's performance.
