The stated application concentrations are suggested starting amounts. Titration of the Hsc70 antibody may be required due to differences in protocols and secondary/substrate sensitivity.
This Hsc70 antibodyis to be used only for research purposes and not for diagnostics..
The 70 kilodalton heat shock proteins(Hsp70s) are a family of ubiquitously expressed heat shock proteins. The Hsp70s are an important part of the cell's machinery for protein folding, and help to protect cells from stress. All of the Hsp70 proteins have three major functional domains: An N-terminal ATPase domain binds ATP(Adenosine triphosphate) and hydrolyzes it to ADP(Adenosine diphosphate); A substrate binding domain contains a groove with an affinity for neutral, hydrophobic amino acid residues; A C-terminal domain rich in alpha helical structure acts as a 'lid' for the substrate binding domain. By binding tightly to partially-synthesized peptide sequences(incomplete proteins), Hsp70 prevents them from aggregating and being rendered nonfunctional. And it also can act to protect cells from thermal or oxidative stress. Finally, Hsp70 seems to be able to participate in disposal of damaged or defective proteins. Interaction with CHIP(Carboxyl-terminus of Hsp70 Interacting Protein)–an E3 ubiquitin ligase–allows Hsp70 to pass proteins to the cell's ubiquitination and proteolysis pathways.
An amino acid sequence from the N-terminus of human Hsc70 (TTYSCVGVFQHGKVEIIAN) was used as the immunogen for this Hsc70 antibody (100% homologous in human, mouse and rat).
After reconstitution, the Hsc70 antibody can be stored for up to one month at 4oC. For long-term, aliquot and store at -20 deg. Celcius or lower. Cycles of freezing and thawing can denaturate the peptide chains of the antibodies and reduce their sensitivity and/or change their affinity. Prepare aliqotes in such a manner so that freeze-thaw cycles are minimized. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by NJS poly they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
