Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
TRAF6 , RNF85 , MGC:3310
TRAFs (TNF receptor associated proteins) form a family of cytoplasmic adapter proteins that mediate signal transduction from many members of the TNF-receptor superfamily and the interleukin-1 receptor. The carboxy-terminal region of TRAFs is required for self-association and interaction with receptor cytoplasmic domains following ligand-induced oligomerization. Recent molecular cloning studies have lead to identification of six TRAFs (TRAF1-TRAF6). Recently it has been shown that TRANCE/OPGL activates the antiapoptotic serine/threonine kinase Akt/PKB throμgh a signaling complex involving c-Src and TRAF6. Mice deficient in TRAF6 are osteopetrotic with defects in bone remodeling and tooth eruption due to impaired osteoclast function. Like TRAF2 and TRAF3, TRAF6 is also essential for perinatal and postnatal survival. These findings establish diverse and critical roles for TRAF6 in perinatal and postnatal survival, bone metabolism, LPS, and cytokine signaling.

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 54 kDa TRAF6 in samples of human and mouse 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.
