Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
NTRK2 , GP145-TrkB , TRKB , Trk-B , tyrosine receptor kinase
Due to the various splice variants, the trk proteins exist as variably glycosylated entities with the major forms having molecular weights of 140-145 kDa, 110 kDa and the unglycosylated form of 80 kDa. trkB contains 33.3% carbohydrate by weight representing modification on 10 of 12 N-glycosylation sites. The primary ligand for trkB is BDNF which induces the phosphorylation of the protein and subsequent binding of PLC-gamma via SH2 domains. TrkB may function to modulate neuronal responses to the neurotrophins acting throμgh trkB such as BDNF.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) immunoaffinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation, Immunofluorescence
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml), immunofluorescence (5-10 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Trk protein exists as variably glycosylated entities with the major forms having molecular weights of 140 kDa, 110 kDa, and the unglycosylated form of 80 kDa.
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.
