Q&A and Customer Reviews


Is the portion which is tagged a his-tag in this peptide and if it is possible to detection by commercial his-tag ELISA?

Thanks for your question! Our protein contains the his-tag, so it can be used in his-tag Elisa in theory. But we have not verified it by ourself yet, so we can't gurantee.

Target Data

Function Glucagon plays a key role in glucose metabolism and homeostasis. Regulates blood glucose by increasing gluconeogenesis and decreasing glycolysis. A counterregulatory hormone of insulin, raises plasma glucose levels in response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia. Plays an important role in initiating and maintaining hyperglycemic conditions in diabetes.; FUNCTION
