Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
CREB-1, cAMP-response Element-binding Protein-1, CREB1 , CREB, MGC9284
Transcription factor CREB binds the cAMP response element (CRE) and activates transcription in response to a variety of extracellular signals including neurotransmitters, hormones, membrane depolarization, and growth or neurotrophic factors. Protein kinase A and the calmodulin-dependent protein kinase CaMKII stimulate CREB phosphorylation at Ser133, a key regulatory site controlling transcriptional activity. Phosphorylation at Ser133 is also mediated by p44/42 MAP kinase, p90RSK, p38 MAP kinase and MSK1. CREB appears to play an important role in learning and memory in both flies and mice.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 109 of rat CREB
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 (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 43 kDa CREB from samples of human, mouse and rat origins.
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.
