DnaJ/HSP40 proteins have been preserved throughout evolution and are important for protein translation, folding, unfolding, translocation, and degradation, primarily by stimulating the ATPase activity of chaperone proteins, HSP70s. Because the ATP hydrolysis is essential for the activity of HSP70s, DnaJ/HSP40 proteins actually determine the activity of HSP70s by stabilizing their interaction with substrate proteins. DnaJ/HSP40 proteins all contain the J domain through which they bind to HSP70s. HSP40, also known as HDJ1 (6), is a basic mammalian 40kDa heat shock protein which is not only homologous to the bacterial heat shock protein (DnaJ), but also yeast DnaJ-related proteins such as SCJ1, Sec63/Npl1, YDJ1 and SIS1 (2-5). HSP 40 is inducible by stress including heat after which is moves from the cytoplasm to the nucleus and nucleoli; an intracellular pattern similar to HSC70/HSP70, the mammalian homologues of the bacterial heat shock protein, DnaK (2).

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.
StressMark antibodies supplies antibodies that are for research of human proteins.
Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies. Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens). Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species. Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
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. Rabbits are used for polyclonal antibody production by StressMark antibodies. Rabbit antibodies are very stable and can be stored for several days at room temperature. StressMark antibodies adds sodium azide and glycerol to enhance the stability of the rabbit polyclonal antibodies. Anti-human, anti mouse antibodies to highly immunogenic selected peptide sequences are" monoclonal like" since the epitope to which they are directed is less than 35 amino acids long.
