Technical Data
Catenin, alpha 2
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blotting. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blotting: 1:1000-1:2000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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

Synthetic peptide: DLANRFKEFGKKMVKL conjugated to KLH, corresponding to amino acids 171-186 of Human alpha 2 Catenin.
0.01M PBS. pH 7.4
Anti-alpha-N-Catenin recognizes alpha-N-catenin (102kD) by immunoblotting.Staining of the alpha-N-catenin band in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited with the alpha-N-catenin immunizing peptide (human, amino acids 171-186). Species Crossreactivity: Crossreacts with Human. Expected to crossreact with Mouse (93% identity with immunogen) and Chicken (93% identity with immunogen) due to sequence homology.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
