|Other Names||Proenkephalin-A, Synenkephalin, Met-enkephalin, Opioid growth factor, OGF, PENK(114-133), PENK(143-183), Met-enkephalin-Arg-Gly-Leu, Leu-enkephalin, PENK(237-258), Met-enkephalin-Arg-Phe, PENK|
|Target/Specificity||This PENK antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 145-174 amino acids from the Central region of human PENK.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||PENK Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Met- and Leu-enkephalins compete with and mimic the effects of opiate drugs. They play a role in a number of physiologic functions, including pain perception and responses to stress. PENK(114-133) and PENK(237-258) increase glutamate release in the striatum. PENK(114-133) decreases GABA concentration in the striatum.|
