Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody

Species :

Tag :

Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the ALK4 protein

Cited Applications :WB, ELISA

Cross Reactivity :Human and Mouse

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :ALK4 antibody was raised against a 14 amino acid synthetic peptide near the carboxy terminus of the human ALK4

Purification :Affinity chromatography

Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Sample Data :Western blot analysis of ALK4 in human kidney tissue lysate with ALK4 antibody at 1 ug/ml in (A) the absence and (B) the presence of blocking peptide.

Scientific Background :ALK4 is a member of the subfamily of receptor ser/thr kinases that mediates signaling by the Activins. ALK4 is expressed in many human tissues, including kidney, pancreas, brain, lung, and liver. Truncated ALK4, predominantly expressed in human pituitary adenomas, function as dominant negative receptors to interfere with wild-type receptor function and blocks the antiproliferative effect of activin possibly contributing to development of human pituitary tumors (1). ALK4 is able to mediate Nodal signaling in the presence of Cripto during vertebrate development (2).
