Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the IKK gamma protein and has no cross response to IKK alpha or IKK beta
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, ICC
Cross Reactivity :Human, Mouse and Rat
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :IKK gamma antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids 400 to 416 of human IKK gamma, which are identical to those of mouse homologue.
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 IKK gamma in HeLa whole cell lysate with IKK gamma antibody at 1 ug/ml.
Sample Data :Immunocytochemistry of IKK gamma in HeLa cells with IKK gamma antibody at 5 ug/ml.
Scientific Background :IKKgamma is a serine/threonine protein kinase that phosphorylates the I-kappa-B protein which is an inhibitor of the transcription factor NF-kappa-B complex. Phosphorylation of I-kappa-B protein triggers the degradation of the inhibitor via the ubiquitination pathway, thereby activating NF-kappa-B complex. IKKgamma forms dimers and trimers and interacts preferentially with IKKbeta but not IKKalpha (1). IKKgamma associates with activated ATM after the induction of DNA double-strand breaks (2). ATM phosphorylates serine-85 of IKKgamma to promote its ubiquitin-dependent nuclear export.
