Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is a naturally occurring chemical found in blood plasma. It is a metabolic by- product of continual protein modification processes in the cytoplasm of all human cells. It is closely related to L-arginine. ADMA interferes with L-arginine in the production of nitric oxide, a key chemical involved in normal endothelial function and, by extension, cardio- vascular health. Since raised levels of ADMA appear to be associated with adverse human health consequences for cardiovascular disease, metabolic diseases, and also a wide range of diseases of the elderly, the possible lowering of ADMA levels may have important therapeutic effects.
Host species: Mouse.
Antibody Class: IgM
This antibody reacts with free and bound ADMA. It does not cross-react with free or bound arginine or NG- monomethyl arginine.
Immunoblotting: use at 1-2ug/ml
Immunohistochemistry: use at 1-10ug/ml.
These are recommended concentrations. Enduser should determine optimal concentrations for their applications.
Reconstitute in distilled water.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
This product is stable for at least one (1) year at -20°C to -70°C. Reconstituted product should be stored in appropriate aliquots to avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
