Store this antibody in aqueous buffered solution containing 1% BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Keep refrigerated at 2 to 8 degrees Celcius for up to one year.
For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 633 is a practical alternative to APC as well as Cy5. Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR made this Alexa Fluor 633 conjugate that can be used in multi-color flow cytometry with instruments equipped with a second red laser or red diode. It is detected in the FL4 detector of the core's upgraded 2-laser FACScans. Like other Alexa Fluor dyes, the Anti-NAP1L2 exhibits uncommon photo stability, making it an ideal choice for fluorescent microscopy.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Background of the antigen
Proper nucleosome assembly is critical for compacting DNA into chromatin. In human and mouse there are 5 protein-coding genes which comprise the nucleosome assembly protein (NAP) family. NAP1L1 (NAP1) and NAP1L4 (NAP2) are ubiquitously expressed family members which have been the most extensively studied. The remaining three family members, NAP1L2, NAP1L3 and NAP1L5 are neuron-specific nucleosome assembly proteins translated from intronless genes which are monoallelically expressed. NAP1L2 (nucleosome assembly protein 1-like 2), also known as BPX (brain specific protein, X-linked), is a 460 amino acid protein containing acidic domains which are thought to mediate histone interactions. NAP1L2 binds to chromatin and interacts with Histones H3 and H4. The function of NAP1L2 is not clearly defined although evidence suggests that NAP1L2 influences histone acetylation and therefore may play a significant role in regulating transcription in developing neurons.
