ACTH (Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone) (Pituitary Marker) Antibody - Without BSA and Azide
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody [Clone 2F6 ]
|Application ||IHC-P, IF, FC|
|Other Accession||5443, 1897|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Isotype||Mouse / IgG1, kappa|
|Calculated MW||ACTH is ~5kDa, and the POMC precursor is ~30kDa. The molecular weight of POMC depends upon isoform variation and post-translational modifications.|
|Other Names||Pro-opiomelanocortin, POMC, Corticotropin-lipotropin, NPP, Melanotropin gamma, Gamma-MSH, Potential peptide, Corticotropin, Adrenocorticotropic hormone, ACTH, Melanotropin alpha, Alpha-MSH, Corticotropin-like intermediary peptide, CLIP, Lipotropin beta, Beta-LPH, Lipotropin gamma, Gamma-LPH, Melanotropin beta, Beta-MSH, Beta-endorphin, Met-enkephalin, POMC|
|Format||200ug/ml of Ab purified from Bioreactor Concentrate by Protein A/G. Prepared in 10mM PBS with 0.05% BSA & 0.05% azide. Also available WITHOUT BSA & azide at 1.0mg/ml.|
|Storage||Store at 2 to 8°C.Antibody is stable for 24 months.|
|Precautions||ACTH (Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone) (Pituitary Marker) Antibody - Without BSA and Azide is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||ACTH stimulates the adrenal glands to release cortisol. Beta-endorphin and Met-enkephalin are endogenous opiates.|
|Tissue Location||ACTH and MSH are produced by the pituitary gland|

ACTH (same as Corticotropin) is a 39 amino acid active peptide produced by the anterior pituitary. This MAb is specific to Synacthen (aa1-24 of ACTH); does not react with CLIP (aa17-39 of ACTH). POMC (pro-opiomelanocortin or corticotropin-lipotropin) is a 267 amino acid polypeptide hormone precursor that goes through extensive, tissue-specific posttranslational processing by convertases. POMC is cleaved into ten hormone chains named NPP, ACTH, alpha-MSH (Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone), beta-MSH, gamma-MSH, CLIP (corticotropin-like intermediary peptide), Lipotropin-beta, Lipotropin-gamma, beta-endorphin and Met-enkephalin. ACTH is also produced by cells of immune system (T-cells, B-cells, and macrophages) in response to stimuli associated with stress. Anti-ACTH is a useful marker in classification of pituitary tumors and the study of pituitary disease. It reacts with ACTH-producing cells (corticotrophs).ĀIt also may react with other tumors (e.g. some small cell carcinomas of the lung) causing paraneoplastic syndromes by secreting ACTH. ĀĀ
