This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
Cross Reactive Species details
No significant cross reactivity has been observed for this antibody for the tested species. However, note that due to limited knowledge it is impossible to predict with 100% guarantee that the antibody does not corss react with any other species.
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
GGH is a 318 amino acid protein that is secreted into the extracellular space and is also localized to both the lysosome and the melanosome. Functioning as a hydrolase, GGH contains one gamma-glutamyl hydrolase domain through which it catalyzes the hydrolysis of polyglutamate sidechains from pteroylpolyglutamates, specifically hydrolyzing gamma-glutamyl bonds. Via its catalytic activity, GGH may play a role in the bioavailability and metabolic activity of pteroylpolyglutamates. Polymorphisms in the gene encoding GGH are associated with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and various cancers. The gene encoding GGH maps to human chromosome 8, which consists of nearly 146 million base pairs, houses more than 800 genes and is associated with a variety of diseases and malignancies.
