Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the IKK alpha protein and has no cross response to IKK beta or IKK gamma

Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, ICC, IF

Cross Reactivity :Human

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :IKK alpha antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids 699 to 715 of human IKK alpha, which differs from corresponding murine sequence by one amino acid.

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 alpha in HeLa whole cell lysate with IKK alpha antibody at 1:500 dilution.

Sample Data :Immunocytochemistry of IKK alpha in HeLa cells with IKK alpha antibody at 10 ug/ml.

Scientific Background :IKKalpha 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 (1). IKKalpha is an essential regulator of NF-kappa-B-dependent gene expression through control of promoter-associated histone phosphorylation after cytokine exposure (2). IKKalpha is a critical component of the cytoplasmic transductional-transcriptional processor leading to induction of IFN alpha production. IKKalpha is also involved in the epidermis where it antagonizes mitogenic and angiogenic signals and represses tumor progression and metastases.
