For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Anti-FKBP11 has a very high photo stability. As a result of this photo stability, it has turned into an antibody for fluorescent microscopy and FACS FLOW cytometry. It is distinguished in the FL1 of a FACS-Calibur or FACScan. Also Alexa Fluor 488 is pH stable.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
The immunophilins are a highly conserved family of cis-trans peptidyl-prolyl isomerases that bind to and mediate the effects of immunosuppressive drugs, such as cyclosporin, FK506 and rapamycin. Immunophilins have also been implicated in protein folding and trafficking within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). FKBP11 (FK506-binding protein 11), also known as FKBP19 or peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase FKBP11, is a 201 amino acid single-pass membrane protein belonging to the FKBP-type PPIase family, a group of proteins known to catalyze the folding of proline-containing polypeptides. Containing one PPIase FKBP-type domain, FKBP11 is expressed in secretory tissues such as pancreas, pituitary, stomach, lymph node and salivary gland, and is encoded by a gene that maps to human chromosome 12q13.12. FK506 and rapamycin are known to inhibit FKBP11â€™s peptidyl-prolyl isomerase activity.
