Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
PCNA, proliferating cell nuclear antigen
PCNA (Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen) is a 36 kDa protein also known as cyclin. In early S phase, PCNA has a very granular distribution and is absent from the nucleoli. At late S phase, PCNA is prominent in the nucleoli. There are two forms of PCNA protein present in cells, a soluble form sensitive to organic fixation and not involved in replication, and the other form is insoluble and is associated with ongoing DNA synthesis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminus of human PCNA

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-PCNA polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). Per researcher’s feedback, it can also be used in immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry (frozen & paraffin). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
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.
