Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Notch-1, Notch 1, NOTCH1, TAN1, hN1
Notch proteins are transmembrane receptor that regluate cell fate decisions. Four Notch homologs have been identified in mammals namely Notch 1, Notch 2, Notch 3 and Notch 4. The membrane ligand for Notch includes Jagged 1, Jagged 2 and Delta. Notch 1 is a 270 kDa transmembrane receptor that can be activated by Delta (Dl) ligand. Activation of Notch 1 will result in the proteolytic cleavage of Notch 1 into a 120 kDa length protein.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acid 1760 of mouse Notch1
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes a 120 kDa band from samples of human and mouse origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
