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.
Carboxypeptidase A (CPA) is a pancreatic exopeptidase which hydrolyses the peptide bond adjacent to the C-terminal end in polypeptide chains. Mast cell carboxypeptidase A (MC-CPA), a part of the peptidase M14 family, is a highly conserved metalloprotease localized to the secretory granules, along with trytases and chymases. MC-CPA is stored as an active enzyme in the granule and is released, along with other inflammatory mediators, upon mast cell degranulation. MC-CPA mirrors pancreatic carboxypeptidase A in cleaving COOH-terminal aromatic and aliphatic amino acid residues. The optimum pH of MC-CPA is between neutral and basic, depending upon the substrate. The MC-CPA gene, CPA3, resides on chromosome 3 and contains 11 exons.
