Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
NAD-dependent deacetylase sirtuin-4, SIR2-like protein 4
Silent information regulator (Sir2)-like family deacetylases (also known as sirtuins) are highly conserved proteins and have important roles in the regulation of metabolism, inflammation, cellular survival growth and differentiation. Sirtuins, including SIRT1-7, are human homologs of yeast Sir2p. Sirtuins are NAD-dependent protein ADP-ribosyl transferase which catalyzes the transfer of ADP-ribosyl groups onto target proteins, including mitochondrial GLUD1. SIRT4 localizes to mitochondria, inhibits glutamate dehydrogenase (GLUD1), and may involve in the regulation of insulin secretion.

Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti- SIRT4 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 5 mM EDTA and 0.03% proclin.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western Blot analysis (1-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Blocking peptide (Cat.# 3224BP-50) is available separately.
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.
