Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
NOS3 , cNOS , ECNOS , EC-NOS , NOSIII
eNOS (Endothelial nitric-oxide synthase) is an important enzyme in the cardiovascular system. eNOS is regulated by phosphorylation at multiple sites. The two most thoroμghly studied sites are the activation site Ser1177 and the inhibitory site Thr495. Several protein kinases including Akt/PKB, PKA and AMPK activate eNOS by phosphorylating Ser1177 in response to various stimuli. In contrast, bradykinin and hydrogen peroxide activate eNOS activity by promoting Thr495 dephosphorylation.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 602 of rat eNOS
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 conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 140 kDa eNOS 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.
