Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
DEDAF , YEAF1 , AAP1 , APAP-1, RYBP, RING1 and YY1-binding protein; Death effector domain-associated factor; DED-associated factor; YY1 and E4TF1-associated factor 1; Apoptin-associating protein 1; APAP-1
Cell death signal are transduced by death domain (DD), death effector domain (DED), and caspase recruitment domain (CARD) containing molecules. A novel protein that interacts with DED of caspase-8 and -10, and FADD was recently identified and designated DEDAF (for DED associated factor). DEDAF is identical to the transcriptional repressor RYBP. DEDAF interacts with FADD and aμgments the formation of CD95/FADD/caspase-8 complexes at the cytoplasm. DEDAF also interacts with DED-containing DNA biding protein (DEDD) in the nucleus, indicating it is involved in the regulation of both cytoplasmic and nuclear events of apoptosis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 218 of human DEDAF
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-DEDAF 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 blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. A549 or HepG2 cell lysate can be used as a positive control. A 32 kDa band should be detected.
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.
