Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the IRAK2 protein and has no cross response to IRAK1
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, ICC, IF
Cross Reactivity :Human
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :IRAK2 antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human IRAK2
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 IRAK2 in HeLa (H) and K562 (K) whole cell lysate with IRAK2 antibody (C2) at 2 ug/ml.
Sample Data :Immunocytochemical staining of HeLa cells using IRAK2 antibody at 2 ug/ml.
Scientific Background :Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 2 (IRAK2) is important downstream signaling components of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) (1). IRAKs were first described as signal transducers for IL-1 and later have been implicated in signal transduction of other members of the Toll/IL-1 receptor family. The interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1R) signaling pathway leads to NFkB activation in mammals. To date, four mammalian IRAKs have been identified (IRAK-1, IRAK-2, IRAK-4, and IRAK-M) (2). It is believed that IRAK-2 could be an additional therapeutic target for inhibiting IL-1-induced inflammation.
