Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
CAPC , SMC4 , SMC4L1 , hCAP-C
The SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) family of proteins form heterodimeric complexes that modulate sister chromatid cohesion and chromosome condensation for mitosis. The two distinct classes of SMC protein complexes are comprised of SMC1 (also designated SB1.8) with SMC3 (also designated hCAP and Bamacan), and SMC2 (also designated hCAP-E for chromosome-associated polypeptide E) with hCAP-C. The SMC2/hCAP-C complex is required for mitotic chromosome condensation and functions independently of the SMC1/SMC3 complex during the cell cycle. Both SMC2 and hCAP-C are expressed throughout the cell cycle in a variety of cell lines, including HeLa cells, Daudi B cells, Jurkat T cells, SK2 neuronal cells, and HepG2 liver cells.
Clonality of antibody:

Synthetic peptide of human SMC4
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µL affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (1:200 – 1:2000). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. HEK293T cell lysate can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes the SMC4 of human origin. 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.
