Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
KAP1, KRAB-associated protein 1; TF1B, TIF1B, TIF1-beta, transcriptional intermediary factor 1-beta; TRIM28: tripartite motif-containing 28; Nuclear corepressor KAP-1
KAP-1 (KRAB-Associated Protein 1) is a member of the tripartite motif RBCC/Trim domain family that contains a RING finger domain, B boxes, and an alpha helical coiled coil region. KAP-1 functions as a corepressor by interacting with the KRAB domain of KRAB zinc-finger transcriptional repressors. KAP-1 also appears to function as a scaffold for chromatin-remodeling complexes involved in transcriptional repression.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation
Western blotting (1:500 – 1:2500) and immunoprecipitation. 293T cell lysate can be used as a positive control. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the KAP-1 of human origin. 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.
