Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the Anti-HAMP / Hepcidin Antibody IHC-plus with the following immunoassay(s):
Immunohistochemistry - Paraffin (IHC) (Human Liver: Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE))
Western Blot (WB) (Western blot of extracts of MB435 cell lines, using HAMP antibody.)
HAMP Antibody, Hepcidin antimicrobial peptide Antibody, LEAP-1 Antibody, LEAP1 Antibody, HEPC Antibody, Hepcidin Antibody, HFE2B Antibody, PLTR Antibody, Putative liver tumor regressor Antibody Description: Liver-produced hormone that constitutes the main circulating regulator of iron absorption and distribution across tissues. Acts by promoting endocytosis and degradation of ferroportin, leading to the retention of iron in iron-exporting cells and decreased flow of iron into plasma.
Immunogen: HAMP / Hepcidin antibody was raised against recombinant full length Human HAMP.
Immunogen Description: Recombinant full length Human HAMP.
Immunogen Type: Recombinant protein
Target: HAMP/Hepcidin. Target Species: Human

Recommended Immunohistochemistry Protocol: The following protocol is a recommendation only, and MyBioSource, Inc. makes no guarantee of the results:
Formalin fixation and embedding in paraffin wax.
Make 4-um sections and place on pre-cleaned and charged microscope slides. Heat in a tissue-dryingoven for 45 minutes at 60°C.
Wash dry slides in 3 changes of xylene - 5 minutes each @ RT
Wash slides in 3 changes of 100% alcohol - 3 minutes each @ RT
Wash slides in 2 changes of 95% alcohol - 3 minutes each @ RT
Wash slides in 1 change of 80% alcohol - 3 minutes @ RT
Rinse slides in gentle running distilled water - 5 minutes @ RT
Steam slides in 0.01 M sodium citrate buffer, pH 6.0 at 99-100°C - 20 minutes
Remove from heat and let stand at room temperature in buffer - 20 minutes
Rinse in 1X TBS with Tween (TBST) -1 minute @ RT
(Do not allow tissues to dry at any time during the staining procedure)
Apply an universal protein block - 20 minutes @ RT
Drain protein block from slides, apply diluted primary antibody - 45 minutes @ RT
Rinse slides in 1 X TBST - 1 minute @ RT
Apply a biotinylated secondary antibody appropriate for the primary antibody - 30 minutes @ RT
Rinse slides in 1X TBST -1 minute @ RT
Apply alkaline phosphatase streptavidin - 30 minutes @ RT
Rinse slides in 1X TBST -1 minute @ RT
Apply alkaline phosphatase chromogen substrate - 30 minutes @ RT
Wash slides in distilled water - 1 minute @ RT
(This method should only be used if the chromogen substrate is alcohol insoluble (e.g. Vector Red, DAB)
Wash slides in 2 changes of 80% alcohol - 1 minute each @ RT
Wash slides in 2 changes of 95% alcohol - 1 minute each @ RT
Wash slides in 3 changes of 100% alcohol - 1 minute each @ RT
Wash slides in 3 changes of xylene - 1 minute each @ RT
