MA5-14682 targets Human Growth Hormone in ELISA, IP, and RIA applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-14682 immunogen is human Growth Hormone.
MA5-14682 detects Human Growth Hormone which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 24 kDa.
Product MA514682 is a smaller package size of MIH9901 (formerly sold as a Seradyn product).
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the somatotropin/prolactin family of hormones which play an important role in growth control. The gene, along with four other related genes, is located at the growth hormone locus on chromosome 17 where they are interspersed in the same transcriptional orientation; an arrangement which is thought to have evolved by a series of gene duplications. The five genes share a remarkably high degree of sequence identity. Alternative splicing generates additional isoforms of each of the five growth hormones, leading to further diversity and potential for specialization. This particular family member is expressed in the pituitary but not in placental tissue as is the case for the other four genes in the growth hormone locus. Mutations in or deletions of the gene lead to growth hormone deficiency and short stature.
