Target of this antibody:
MAD2
Alternative names of antibody target:
MAD2, HsMAD2, Mitotic Arrest Deficient 2, MAD2L1, MAD2-like 1
Background information:
Cell cycle progression is subject to arrest at the mitotic spindle assembly checkpoint in response to incorrect spindle fiber assembly. MAD2 (for mitotic arrest-deficient) is a component of the mitotic spindle checkpoint. Cells with mutated MAD2 do not undergo mitotic arrest in response to incorrect spindle fiber assembly, which results in missegregation and eventual cell death. A breast carcinoma cell line with reduced MAD2 expression, T47D, was shown to complete mitosis in the presence of nocodazole, an inhibitor of mitotic spindle assembly. MAD2 is localized to unattached kinetochores during prometaphase and disassociates upon spindle fiber attachment, indicating that MAD2 regulates kinetochore binding to the spindle fibers. Human MAD2 has also been shown to associate with insulin receptor (IR), but not IGFIR, implicating MAD2 as a mediator for IR-specific signaling. MAD2B, a MAD2 homolog, is required for the execution of the mitotic checkpoint monitoring the kinetochore-spindle attachment process and if the process is not complete, MAD2B delays the onset of anaphase.
Antibody host:
Rabbit
Clonality of antibody:
Polyclonal
Isotype:
Rabbit IgG
This antibody reacts with:
Human
Immunogene sequence:
Synthetic peptide of human MAD2
Concentration of antibody:
N/A
Form of antibody:
Liquid
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.
Purification method:
Affinity purified
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation
Recommended usage:
Western blotting (1:500 – 1:2000) and Immunoprecipitation. HeLa cell lysate can be used as a positive control. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the MAD2 of human origin. Reactivity to other species has not been tested. Reactivity with mouse samples is likely due to high sequence homology.
Storage information:
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Shipping conditions:
gel pack
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
Description
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.
Properties
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.
