Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
silencer of death domains, BAG family molecular chaperone regulator 4; BAG-4; Bcl-2-associated athanogene 4; Silencer of death domains
Apoptosis is induced by certain cytokines including TNF and Fas ligand of the TNF family throμgh their death domain containing receptors, TNF-R1 and Fas. Several novel death receptors including DR3, DR4, DR5, and DR6 were recently identified. Cell death signal is transduced by death domain containing adapter molecules throμgh the interaction with death domain of these death receptors. A novel TNF-R1 interacting protein was recently identified and designated SODD for silencer of death domain. SODD associates with the death domain of TNF-R1 and prevents constitutive activation of TNF-R1 signaling. TNF treatment releases SODD and permits adapter molecules such as TRADD recruiting to the active TNF-R1 complex, which activates TNF signaling pathways. SODD also interacts with DR3. SODD is ubiquitously expressed in human tissues and cell lines.

Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide mapping to the N-terminus of human SODD
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) peptide affinity purified, rabbit anti-SODD polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot analysis (1-2 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects an approximately 60 kDa human SODD by Western blot analysis. HeLa and THP-1 cell lysate can be used as positive control.
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.
