This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Target of this antibody:
DR3 (Death Receptor 3/Apo3)
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) antigen affinity-purified rabbit anti-DR3/Apo3 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
Alternative names of antibody target:
Apo 3, LARD, TNFRSF12, TRAMP, TNFRSF25, WSL1
Western blot: 1-4 µg
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
Apoptosis can be induced by certain cytokines including TNF and Fas in the TNF superfamily through interaction with their death domain (DD) containing receptors, TNFR1 and Fas. A member of the TNF receptor family was recently identified and designated DR3 (also called Wal-1, Apo3, TRAMP and LARD). The ligand for this novel death receptor has been defined as TWEAK (also termed Apo3L). Like TNFR1, overexpression of DR3 triggers apoptosis and NF-kB activation. Activation of DR3 results in recruitment of TRADD (a DD containing adapter molecule). TRADD associates with FADD, TRAF2, and RIP to activate the signaling complex for NF-kB activation. DR3 activates apoptosis through TRADD, FADD, and caspase-8. DR3 is highly expressed in the tissues enriched in lymphocytes including peripheral blood leucocytes (PBL), thymus and spleen.
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.
Polyclonals and antibodies
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
