The antibody recognises mono and oligomeric phospholamban when phosphorylated on serine-16 by PKA. Binding of the antibody to its target epitope is blocked in the presence of a phosphopeptide containing the PLB Phospho Ser-16 epitope. Antibody affinity is reduced in circumstances of dual phosphorylation of Ser-16 and Thr-17.
Lyophilised antibody is stable at 4 °C when stored with desiccant. Reconstitute lyophilised powder in 25 µl of 18 MΩ H2O, aliquot and store frozen at -80 °C for 1 year. Avoid freeze – thaw cycles. Lyophilised: 4 °C Reconstituted:-80 °C
