Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
IRAK-4 , IRAK4 , REN64 , NY-REN-64 , LOC51135, IPD1
The IRAK family members play an important role in IL-1R/TLR mediated inflammatory responses and in innate immunity. IRAK-4 is a novel member in the IRAK family. Over expression of IRAK-4 activates NFkB and MAPK pathways. Animas and human lacking IRAK-4 are impaired in their responses to viral and bacterial challenges.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide mapping to the C-terminus of human IRAK-4
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) 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 blotting (2-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 50 kDa human IRAK-4. Reactivity of the antibody 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.
