Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
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.
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
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.

PTCH (Patched protein homolog 1) is a receptor for sonic hedgehog (SHH), indian hedgehog (IHH) and desert hedgehog (DHH). PTCH associates with the smoothened protein (SMO) to transduce the hedgehog's proteins signal.PTCH has a tumor suppressor function, as inactivation of this protein is probably a necessary, if not sufficient step for tumorigenesis. PTCH is expressed in the adult brain, lung, liver, heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, pancreas and kidney. It is also expressed in tumor cells but not in normal skin. During development PTCH is found in all major target tissues of sonic hedgehog, such as the ventral neural tube, somites, and tissues surrounding the zone of polarizing activity of the limb bud. Defects in PTCH are probably the cause of basal cell nevus syndrome also known as Gorlin syndrome or Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.
