Product Description

This MAb is highly specific to testosterone. Its affinity constant for testosterone is ~1010 M-1. In competitive binding immunoassay, it reacts with testosterone 100%, 11-beta-hydroxy testosterone 3.3%, 17-alpha-methyl testosterone <0.1%, 5-alpha DHT 0.8%, estradiol <0.1% and progesterone <0.1%. Testosterone, a steroid hormone from the androgen group, is derived from cholesterol. Testosterone is primarily secreted in the testes, but the ovaries and adrenal glands also produce smaller amounts. It is the principal male sex hormone and is responsible for the maturation of sex organs and the development of male secondary sex characteristics. The hormone is also involved in the growth of muscle mass and increases bone density and maturation. It functions by activating the androgen receptor and converting to estradiol and activation of estrogen receptors. Testosterone has been employed therapeutically to treat many conditions including infertility, lack of libido, osteoporosis, height growth and bone marrow stimulation. Anti-testosterone antibody may also prove useful in identification of testicular tumors arising from interstitial cells.

Primary antibodies are available purified, or with a selection of fluorescent CF® dyes and other labels. CF® dyes offer exceptional brightness and photostability. See the CF® Dye Brochure for more information. Note: Conjugates of blue fluorescent dyes like CF®405S and CF®405M are not recommended for detecting low abundance targets, because blue dyes have lower fluorescence and can give higher non-specific background than other dye colors.

Stock status: Because Biotium offers a large number of antibody and conjugation options, primary antibody conjugates may be made to order. Typical lead times are up to one week for CF® dye and biotin conjugates, and up to 2-3 weeks for fluorescent protein and enzyme conjugates. Please email order@biotium.com to inquire about stock status and lead times before placing your order.
