Technical Data
B Cell Linker Protein (BLNK, BASH, BLNK-s, Ly57, MGC111051, SLP-65, SLP65)
B-cell linker protein (BLNK, also known as SLP65, BASH, and BCA) is a B cell adaptor that plays an important role in B cell development and in BCR-signal transduction. Since BLNK does not encode any intrinsic enzymatic activity, its function is to serve as a scaffold for assembling macromolecular complexes which includes enzymes (PLC gamma, Vav and Btk) and additional linker proteins (Grb2 and Nck) (1-3) . In addition, BLNK binds Btk and is required for activation of the transcription factor NF- B. Tyrosine phosphorylation of BLNK by Syk provides specific docking sites for these SH2-containing effector proteins which in turn permits phosphorylation and/or activation of their respective signaling pathways.

Suitable for use in Western Blotting, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blotting: 1:500
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50
Immunoprecipitation: 1:20

Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot Freeze 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.
