Question (66059) | Anti-HGF antibody (ab24865)

Go to datasheet (ab24865)


Will this antibody recognize the inactive & active form of the protein?


Thank you for contacting Abcam.

The antibody was generated against the active recombinant protein of HGF, so it should also recognize the inactive precursor form. However we do not have the possibility to check it.

Also, there is a 90% level of homology between the human sequence and mouse, therefore there is strong chance that the antibody will work in this species.
