Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B
Dicer functions is a RNase III-like enzyme which cleaves double-stranded RNA into 21-23 nt RNAs (siRNA short interfering RNA). It is required by the RNA interference and small temporal RNA (stRNA) pathways to produce the active small RNA component that represses gene expression. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified.
Catalog #D3520
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 1:500-1:1000. Detects ~217kD band
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive Control Whole ovary tissue lysate
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Clone TypePolyclonal
FormSupplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 0.05% sodium azide, 0.2% gelatin, before the addition of glycerol to 40%.
PurityPurified by Protein G affinity chromatography.
ImmunogenSynthetic peptide (mouse), corresponding to amino acids FTKHQVLIMTCYVALTVLK (132-150) and QNKQILVPELCAIHPI (1017-1033).
SpecificityRecognizes mouse Dicer. Species sequence homology: human and rat due to over 90% sequence with immunogen, but testing shows no response in human and rat ovary at the recommended testing conditions.
