Polyclonal Anti-Glucagon

Glucagon is a peptide hormone secreted by the islets of Langerhans alpha cells in the pancreas, raising blood glucose levels. In contrast, insulin lowers blood glucose levels. Circulating glucagon initiates the convertion of glycogen to glucose. Both glucagon and insulin help maintain stable blood glucose levels via a physiological feedback system.

Takara's glucagon antibody can be applied towards the immunohistochemical detection of human glucagon in paraffin-embedded tissue and frozen tissue sections. The polyclonal anti-glucagon is raised in Guinea pig against a human glucagon immunogen.

Guinea pig


Lyophilized antibody is stable at 4°C for up to 2 years. The reconstituted solution can be stored at 4°C for up to 6 months or in aliquots at –20°C for up to 1 year. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw. Diluted antibody should not be stored.


Store antibody at a minimum concentration of 2.0 mg/mL. A lower antibody concentrations may result in decreased product stability.

Reconstituted antibody solution should contain 0.1% sodium azide when stored at 4°C.

Dissolve the lyophilized antibody in 50 μL of distilled water (final concentration: 2.0 mg/mL). This solution can be used as a stock solution. If further dilution is required, dilute with the Dilution Solution (listed below) just prior to use. When the entire amount of antibody is to be used over a short time period, it may be dissolved directly in 500 μL or more of the Dilution Solution.

Dilution Solution

  • 10 mM PBS (pH 7.4)
  • 1.0% BSA
  • (0.1% NaN3)*

* When stored at 4°C, 0.1% sodium azide should be added as a preservative.


This product specifically recognizes the KLH-conjugated human glucagon peptide sequence [HSQGTFTSDYSKYLDSRRAQDFVQWLMNT].
