For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Anti-GRC5/PHF2 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
PHF2 is a 1,101 amino acid protein belonging to the PHD finger protein family. Members of the PHD finger protein family function as transcriptional regulators that affect gene expression by modulating chromatin structure. Expressed in a wide variety of tissues, PHF2 localizes to the nucleus and contains one PHD-type zinc finger and one JMJC domain, suggesting a possible role for PHF2 in transcription regulation and chromatin remodeling. The gene encoding PHF2 lies in the candidate region for hereditary sensory neuropathy type I (HSN1), a disorder characterized by sensory dysfunction. PHF2 exhists as two isoforms produced by alternative splicing, designated isoform 1 and 2 respectively.
