Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the ASK1 protein
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA
Cross Reactivity :Human and Mouse
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :ASK1 antibody was raised against a 16 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the amino terminus of human ASK1
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 ASK1 in 3T3 cell lysate with ASK1 antibody at (A) 1 and (B) 2 ug/ml.
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).
