MA1-20887 detects Procalcitonin in human samples.
MA1-20887 has been successfully used in ELISA and Western blot procedures.
The MA1-20887 immunogen is an internal fragment of purified, full length, native human calcitonin.
Procalcitonin (PCT) is a 116 amino acid residue peptide with molecular weight of about 13 kDa. The amino acid sequence of PCT was firstly described by Moullec et al. in 1984. It belongs to a group of related proteins including calcitonin gene-related peptides I and II, amylin, adrenomodulin and calcitonin (CAPA peptide family). PCT, like other peptides of CAPA family, appears from the common precursor pre-procalcitonin consisting of 141 amino acids by removal of 25 a.a.r. from N-terminus.
