Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml), immunoprecipitation (4-8 µg/ml), Immunohistochemistry (4-8 µg/ml), immunocytochemistry (4-8 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
p53, a 53 kDa protein, binds to a DNA consensus sequence, the p53 response element, and regulates normal cell cycle events by activating transcription of genes involved either in progression throμgh the cell cycle, or causing arrest in G1 when the genome is damaged. In most transformed and tumor cells the concentration of p53 is increased 5-1000 fold over the concentration in normal cells, principally due to the increased half-life (4 hrs) compared to that of wild-type (20 min). p53 localizes in the nucleus, but is detectable at the plasma membrane during mitosis and certain mutations also modulate cytoplasmic/nuclear distribution. p53 downregulates Bcl-2 expression and upregulates Bax expression, but may not always be necessary for apoptosis.
Concentration of antibody:
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 antibodies-kits-proteins they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Scope note:Identification of proteins or peptides that have been electrophoretically separated by blot transferring from the electrophoresis gel to strips of nitrocellulose paper, followed by labeling with antibody probes.
