Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
PAK-2 , PAK65 , Gamma-PAK , hPAK65 , PAKgamma
The PAK (p21-activated kinase) family of serine/threonine kinases plays an important role in multiple cellular processes, including cytoskeletal reorganization, MAPK signaling, apoptotic signaling, etc. Binding of Rac/cdc42 to the CRIB (or PBD) domain at the N-terminal region of PAK causes autophosphorylation and conformational change of PAK. Phosphorylation of Ser21 of PAK1 or Ser20 of PAK2 regulates its binding with the adaptor protein Nck.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat, rabbit
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acid 5 of human Pak2
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity 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. Jurkat cell lysate (Cat.# 2601-100) can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes 60 kDa Pak2 of human, mouse, rat, and rabbit origins. The antibody does not cross-react with Pak1, Pak3, and Pak4-6. Reactivity 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.
