Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the FLT3 protein
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, IF
Cross Reactivity :Human and Mouse
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :FLT3 antibody was raised against an 18 amino acid synthetic peptide near the center of human FLT3
Formulation :PBS + 0.02% sodium azide.
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 FLT3 in 3T3 cell lysate with FLT3 antibody at (A) 1 and (B)2 ug/ml.
Scientific Background :FLT3 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that has been shown to play a role in proliferation and survival of hematopoietic progenitor cells as well as differentiation of early B lymphoid progenitors (1). FLT3 consists of an extracellular domain composed of five immunoglobulin-like domains, one transmembrane region, and a cytoplasmic kinase domain split into two parts by a kinase-insert domain. FLT3 is the most frequently mutated gene in cases of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). About 30 to 35% of patients have either internal tandem duplications (ITDs) in the juxtamembrane domain or mutations in the activating loop of FLT3 (2). The consequence of either FLT3-ITD or activating loop mutations is the constitutive activation of the tyrosine kinase activity.
