Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
LRP-5 , LRP -6
LDL-related proteins LRP-5 and LRP-6. are members of the LDL receptor superfamily, which were found to be involved in the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Mammalian LRP-6 was shown to bind to Wnt-1 and enhance Induced-induced developmental processes in Xenopus embryos. Mice lacking LRP-6 exhibited developmental defects that are similar to those caused by deficiencies in various Want proteins. Recent work also shows that Want proteins induce the binding of LRP-5 to Axin, leading Axin degradation and β-catenin stabilization.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 437 of human LRP
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 concentrations should be determined individually. Jurkat cell lysate (Cat.# 2401-100) can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes the ~170 kDa full length LRP-5/6 of human and mouse origins. A cleavage fragment (~120 kDa) can also be detected. 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.
