Background of Gcg

Glucagon is a member of a multigene family that includes secretin. Glucagon is a 29-amino acid pancreatic hormone that counteracts the glucose-lowering action of insulin by stimulating glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis. The human glucagon gene is approximately 9.4 kb long and contains 6 exons and 5 introns, and assigned to 2q36-2q37.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

Asked: 2018-06-04


The immunogen of MA1047 anti-Glucagon antibody (Monoclonal, K79bB10) is Polymerized porcine glucagon. Could you tell me which isotype you are interested in so I can help see if the immunogen is part of this isotype?

Can you help my question with product MA1047, anti-Glucagon antibody (Monoclonal, K79bB10). I was wondering if it would be possible to conjugate this antibody with biotin. I would need it to be without BSA or sodium azide. I am planning on using a buffer exchange of sodium azide with PBS only. Would there be problems for me to conjugate the antibody and store it in -20 degrees in small aliquots?

Asked: 2018-01-11


We suggest not storing this antibody with PBS buffer only in -20 degrees. If you want to store it in -20 degrees it is best to add some cryoprotectant like glycerol. If you want carrier free MA1047 anti-Glucagon antibody (Monoclonal, K79bB10), we can provide it to you in a special formula with trehalose and/or glycerol. These molecules will not interfere with conjugation chemistry and provide a good level of protection for the antibody from degradation. Please be sure to specify this in your purchase order.

Will MA1047 anti-Glucagon antibody (Monoclonal, K79bB10) work on parafin embedded sections? If so, which fixation method do you recommend we use (PFA, paraformaldehyde, other)?

N. Kulkarni

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-05-16


As indicated on the product datasheet, MA1047 anti-Glucagon antibody (Monoclonal, K79bB10) as been validated on IHC. It is best to use PFA for fixation because it has better tissue penetration ability. PFA needs to be prepared fresh before use. Long term stored PFA turns into formalin, as the PFA molecules congregate and become formalin.
