Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
DCR1 , Dicer , HERNA , KIAA0928
Dicer is an RNaseIII-like enzyme which cleaves double-stranded RNA into 21-23 nucleotide (nt) RNAs. These RNAs are referred to as siRNA (short interfering RNA). It is believed to be essential in siRNA-mediated gene suppression.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 1902 of human Dicer
