Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
CCYC, R24L, RAD24, HRAD17, RAD17SP, FLJ41520, RAD17
Rad17 is an essential component of cell cycle checkpoints activated by DNA damage and disruption of DNA replication. DNA lesions such as single- and double-strand breaks, inter- and intra-strand cross-links, and base modifications hamper transcription and replication, resulting in cell cycle arrest, apoptosis, and mutagenesis. Phosphorylation of Rad17 at Ser635 and Ser645 is a critical early event during checkpoint signaling in DNA damaged cells.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 645 of human Rad17
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. The antibody recognizes the mature forms of Rad17 (~55 kDa and ~45 kDa) of human, mouse and rat origins. 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.
