Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
Ehk 2; Ehk2; EPH homology kinase 2; Eph Receptor A6; EphA6; ephrin receptor EphA6; ephrin type A receptor 6; Hek12; EPHA6_HUMAN.
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.
The Eph family of receptors comprises the largest known family of receptor tyrosine kinases. Ligands of Eph family receptors are structurally related membrane bound proteins that can be subdivided into two major subclasses, ephrin A and ephrin B. Expression of Eph receptors is tissue specific and appears to be tied to developmental events. Ligands in the ephrin A subclass, including the prototype family member ephrin A1 (B61), are membrane associated through glycosylphosphatidyl inositol linkages, whereas ephrin B subclass consists of ligands with transmembrane domains. The general role of the Eph family is in mediating repulsive cell-cell interaction.
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.The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell. When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g. a change in the electrical-activity of a cell. In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g. an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine. However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
