|Other Names||Ferrochelatase, mitochondrial, Heme synthase, Protoheme ferro-lyase, FECH|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8657a was selected from the N-term region of human FECH. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the ferrous insertion into protoporphyrin IX.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion inner membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Matrix side|
