|Porcine (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)|
|VIP antibody was raised against pure porcine VIP.|
|Tested on cat and rat tissues. Positive control: Formalin-fixed paraffin sections of cat ileum. Frozen sections of rat small intestine. Absorption with 10-100 ug immunogen per ml diluted antiserum abolishes the staining, while secretin, PHI, glucagon, GIP and CCK do not.|
|50 µl Distilled water|
|Prior to reconstitution, +4°C. Following reconstitution store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.|

VIP Antibody, PHM27 Antibody, Vasoactive intestinal peptide Antibody, VIP peptides AntibodyVIP belongs to the glucagon family. It stimulates myocardial contractility, causes vasodilation, increases glycogenolysis, lowers arterial blood pressure and relaxes the smooth muscle of trachea, stomach and gall bladder. The protein also acts as an antimicrobial peptide with antibacterial and antifungal activity. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified.
