Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
HSF-1, HSF 1, Heat shock factor 1, Heat shock transcription factor 1 , HSTF1, HSTF 1
HSF 1 responds to cellular stress signals such as heat, heavy metals and oxidative reagents. It binds to heat shock response elements in the upstream region of heat shock gene and activates transcription. Upon activation, HSF 1 is trimerized and is localized in the nucleus where it binds the DNA.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 515 of mouse HSF 1
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/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 100-120 kDa band, corresponding to glycosylated HSF 1 in samples from 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.
