Name: Parathyroid Hormone (PTH) clone 77/78
Description and aplications: The PTH is a major regulator of serum calcium and is essential for life, unlike calcitonin , which acts as a complementary regulatory mechanism . Chromophobe cells responsible for the secretion of PTH, are the most abundant in the gland. This antibody is useful for immunohistochemical detection of parathyroid hormone, and used in conjunction with antibodies to thyroglobulin allows the differential diagnosis of lesions of thyroid and parathyroid origin .
Composition: anti- parathyroid hormone (PTH) mouse monoclonal antibody obtained from supernatant culture and prediluted in a tris buffered solution pH 7.4 containing 0.375mM sodium azide solution as bacteriostatic and bactericidal. The quantity of the active antibody was not determined.
