This antibody reacts specifically with ELK4/SAP-1a
KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human ELK4/SAP-1a
Cross reactive species
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat (Rattus norvegicus)
Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
Elk4; ELK4_HUMAN; ETS domain containing protein Elk4; ETS domain protein; ETS domain-containing protein Elk-4; SAP-1; SAP1; Serum response factor accessory protein 1; SRF accessory protein 1; TCF1.
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
Cross Reactive Species details
No significant cross reactivity has been observed for this antibody for the tested species. However, note that due to limited knowledge it is impossible to predict with 100% guarantee that the antibody does not corss react with any other species.
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
Serum response factor (SRF) is a transcription factor that binds the serum response element (SRE), a sequence that mediates the transient response of many cellular genes to growth stimulation. SRF-binding sites are also constitutive promoter elements in many muscle-specific promoters. At the c-Fos SRE, formation of a ternary complex containing SRF and its accessory protein p62TCF appears to be important for signal transduction. Two related Ets domain proteins, Elk-1 and SRF accessory protein-1 (SAP-1), have DNA binding properties identical to that of p62TCF. Elk-1 and SAP-1 contain two homologous regions of which the two amino terminal regions, the Ets domain (box A) and the B box, mediate ternary complex formation with SRF. The third homologous region, the C box located toward the C-terminus of the proteins, contains conserved consensus phosphorylation sites for MAP kinases.
