Product ID: 20074

*All Products sold by immunoStar are Tax Exempt.


The ImmunoStar alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone antiserum was quality control tested using standard immunohistochemical methods. The antiserum demonstrates strongly positive labeling of rat pituitary using biotin/avidin-HRP techniques.

Recommended primary dilution is 1/4000-1/6000 in PBS/0.3% Triton X-100 – Bn/Av-HRP Technique. Staining is completely eliminated by pretreatment of the diluted antibody with 100 ug/mL of alpha-MSH.

Photo Description: IHC image of neurons staining for MSH in the rat hypothalamus (above) and rat pituitary with nickel preparation (below). The tissue was fixed with 4% formaldehyde in phosphate buffer, before being removed and prepared for sectioning. Sections were incubated at RT in 10% goat serum in PBS, before standard IHC procedure. Primary antibody was incubated at 1:5000 for 48 hours, goat anti-rabbit secondary was subsequently added for 1 hour after washing with PBS. Light microscopy staining was achieved with standard biotin-streptavidin/HRP procedure and DAB chromogen.
