GIP Antibody (021-04) is a high quality monoclonal GIP antibody (also designated GIP antibody) suitable for the detection of the GIP protein of human origin. GIP Antibody (021-04) is available as the non-conjugated anti-GIP antibody. Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is a major physiologic factor in the augmentation of the insulin response to oral glucose. GIP is a peptide hormone that is released postprandially from the small intestine and acts in concert with glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 to potentiate glucose-induced insulin secretion from the pancreatic beta-cell. GIP has been shown to increase adenylyl cyclase activity, elevate intracellular calcium levels, and stimulate a mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in the pancreatic beta-cell. Additionally, nutrient protein provides a potent stimulus for GIP expression, an effect that occurs at the posttranslational level and may be mediated in part through the acid-stimulatory properties of protein. GIP release is demonstrated predominantly after ingestion of carbohydrate and fat and the effects of acid on GIP are consistent with a role for GIP as an enterogastrone.

Can sc-57162: GIP (021-04) monoclonal antibody be used to stain formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections?
Preguntado por: Randy McDonald
Thank you for your question. Yes, sc-57162: GIP (021-04) is recommended for use in IHC with paraffin-embedded sections. We recommend performing antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6) and heat. The full protocol can be found here:
