This Anti-Connexin 43 Antibody is validated for use in ELISA, IP, WB, IC for the detection of Connexin 43.
Research CategoryCell Structure
Research Sub CategoryAdhesion (CAMs)
ELISA: 1:10,000-100,000 using 50 - 100 ng Cx43 control peptide per well. Immunocytochemistry: not tested. It is recommended that the antibody be tried at 2-20µg/mL in formaldehyde fixed (Beyer et al. 1985; Nicholson et al. 1985; John et al. 1991; Fishman et al. 1990). Immunoblotting: 1-10µg/mL using Chemiluminescence technique. Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.Immunohistochemistry: A 1:50 dilution of this antibody detected Connexin 43 in sections from mouse heart tissue pretreated with Tris-EDTA buffer, pH 9.0. Proteins were visualized using a donkey anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and chemiluminescence detection.

Mouse Connexin 43 is a 382 amino acid gap junction protein withmouse connexin
a predicted M.W. of ~43 kDa. It is prominently expressed in heart (see reviews: Kumar & Giula 1996; White et al. 1995; Evans 1994; Beyer et al. 1990).
KLH-conjugated synthetic peptide
corresponding to amino acids 360-382 within
the C-terminus of mouse connexin 43.

Affinity-purified using peptide-Sepharose column chromatography and supplied in 0.1 M Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 150 mM NaCl containing 0.05% sodium azide.
Mouse Cx43 immunogenic peptide sequence is specific for Cx43 and no significant homology is seen with other connexins. The mouse Cx43 peptide sequence shows 100% conserved with rat and bovine, and 84% with chicken and human (16/19 aa) Cx43 (Beyer et al. 1985; Nicholson et al. 1985; John et al. 1991; Fishman et al. 1990).
