Technical Data
Blk is a Src family protein tyrosine kinase expressed in all stages of B cell development (1,2). Activation of B cells by various ligands is accompanied by activation of Blk (3). It has been suggested that Blk is involved in the control of B cell differentiation and proliferation (4,5). Except expressed in B cell, Blk transcripts were also detected in human thymocytes but not in mature T cells, implicating that Blk may play an important role in thymopoiesis (6).

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000
Incubate membrane with diluted antibody in 1X TBS, 5% BSA, 0.1% Tween-20 at 4C with gentle shaking, overnight.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
