KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human DLG5
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.
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.
Discs large homolog 5 Drosophila; Discs large homolog 5; Discs large protein LP DLG; Discs large protein P dlg; Discs large protein P-dlg; Disks large homolog 5; DLG 5; DLG5; DLG5_HUMAN; KIAA0583; Large type of P DLG; LP DLG; P DLG5; PDLG; Placenta and prostate DLG.
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.
Membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) family members function as molecular scaffolds for the assembly of multiprotein complexes localizing to the plasma membrane. Several mammalian proteins related to the Drosophila tumor suppressor discs-large (dlg) gene product belong to the MAGUK family. MAGUK family members include the postsynaptic proteins PSD-93, DLG5, Pals1, PSD-95 (SAP 90), densin-180, NE-dlg (SAP 120), dlg-1 (SAP 97), GKAP (GK-associated protein), p55, the tight junction associated proteins ZO-1-3 and the caspase-associated recruitment domain (CARD) proteins CARD6, CARD8-12 and CARD14. DLG5, a cell-cell junction peripheral membrane protein, plays an important role in maintaining the structure of epithelial cell plasma membranes. It also plays an important part in transmitting extracellular signals to the cytoskeleton and the membrane. DLG5 which can interact with MPP1 and CTNNB1, is primarily expressed in prostate and placenta.
