Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
BIRC7, LIVIN, ML-IAP , MLIAP, KIAP , RNF50 , Livin
Livin is a novel member in the IAP (inhibitor of apoptosis) protein family. Livin contains a single baculoviral IAP repeat (BIR) domain and a RING finger domain and has two isoforms termed Livin-α and Livin-β. Transfection of Livin protected cells from apoptosis induced by FADD, BAX, RIP, RIP3 and DR6. Livin directly reacts with several caspases including Caspase-3, -7, and –9, and it inhibits the activation of caspase-9 induced by Apaf-1, cytochrome c and ATP.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid near the C-terminus of the long form of human Livin
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) peptide affinity purified rabbit anti-Livin polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunohistochemistry
Western blotting (2-6 µg/ml). However, the optimal dilution conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects a band at ~33 kDa and a weaker band at 30 kDa, corresponding to Livin α and β. Raji cell lysate can be used as a positive control.
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.
