Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
RCH1, RAG cohort 1, KPNA2, Karyopherin alpha 2, IPOA1, Importin alpha 2, Pendulin, QIP2, SRP1alpha
The import of proteins from the cytoplasm to the nucleus involves docking the protein to receptors associated with the nuclear pore complex followed by translocation through the nuclear pore. RCH1 is an adaptor protein that recognizes the nuclear localization signal (NLS) on cargo and binds the karyopherin importin-beta receptor for nuclear import which is regulated by RanGTP.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide of human RCH1 (KPNA2)
Concentration of antibody:
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 – 1:2000) and Immunoprecipitation. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. HeLa cell lysate can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes the RCH1 (KPNA2) 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.
