Description :Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the ASK1 protein
Cited Applications :WB
Cross Reactivity :Western blot of human ASK1
ASK1 from other species may also be detectable.
Host / Clone# :Mouse, A23
Immunogen :Human recombinant 649-946 ASK1

Stability :Store at 4°C (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20°C for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For optimal performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
Sample Data :Representative western blot (1:1000) with Anti-ASK1 (A23) using 20 ng of GST-tagged human full-length recombinant ASK1.
Scientific Background :ASK1, also known as MAPKKK5, activates MKK3, MKK4 (SEK1), and MKK6. Overexpression of ASK1 induces apoptotic cell death, and ASK1 is activated in cells treated with tumor necrosis factor-alpha (1). ASK1 interacts with members of the TRAF family and is activated by TRAF2 in the TNF-signaling pathway. After activation by TRAF2, ASK1 activates MKK4, which in turn activates JNK. Thus, ASK1 is a mediator of TRAF2-induced JNK activation (2).
