Technical Data
ATPase alpha 1, Na, K
Na,K-ATPase is an integral membrane protein complex that hydrolyzes ATP to maintain the transmembrane gradients of Na+ and K+ found in most mammalian cells. The enzyme is comprised of an alpha and beta subunit. The alpha-polypeptide has been shown to be the catalytically active subunit, whereas the Beta-polypeptide appears to be necessary for the assembly and transport of the sodium pump to the plasma membrane. Na,K-ATPase alpha-1 subunit, in brain, is expressed in both neuronal and non-neuronal cells.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry and Immunofluorescence. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:10,000 Detects a band at ~112kD. Do not boil the sample prior to loading on the gel (60C is sufficient).
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:200
Immunofluorescence: 1:100-1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
