Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
FAS-associated death domain protein, GIG3, MGC8528, MORT1
Fas-associating death domain containing protein (FADD), also known as mediator of receptor induced toxicity (MORT1), is a 23 kDa cytosolic protein with an apparent molecular weight of 28 kDa on SDS-PAGE. The protein is involved in both Fas and TNF-R induced cell death pathway. FADD specifically binds to Fas to initiate the apoptotic signalling cascade. Overexpression of FADD induces apoptosis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat, monkey
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 128 of human FADD
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
30 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-FADD 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, Immunoprecipitation
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml)and can also be used in immunoprecipitation. However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects an ~28 kDa band, corresponding to the expected molecular mass of FADD on immunoblots.
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.
