KLH conjugated synthetic phosphopeptide derived from human Dab1 around the phosphorylation site of Tyr220
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.
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.
Disabled 1 (Dab1) is an 80 kDa protein that is encoded by the Disabled-1 gene locus which is mutated in scrambler and yotari mutant mice. Phenotypically, the mutation of this gene produces motor defects and ataxia, disruption of neuronal migration, and severe cerebellar hypoplasia. Dab1 is an intracellular adapter protein that functions in downstream signaling events initiated by the secreted protein reelin. Dab1 contains a phosphotyrosine binding (PTB) domain in the amino terminus. Tyrosine phosphorylation of Dab1 is increased by reelin binding to the Very Low Density Lipoprotein Receptor (VLDLR) and Apolipoprotein E Receptor 2 (ApoER2) through stimulation of Src family kinases. Src family kinase and c-Abl activities are themselves then stimulated by binding to tyrosine phosphorylated Dab1. Dab1 also mediates activation of Akt (PKB) by reelin resulting in inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (GSK-3 beta) and decreased phosphorylation of the microtubule-associated protein, Tau. Dab1 serine 491 is phosphorylated in a Cdk5-dependent manner and regulates, likely indirectly, Reelin-induced signaling during neural cortex development.
