CENP-Q (Centromere Protein Q)
Description:
Cenp-Q (also known as centromere protein Q or CENPQ) is a nuclear/centromeric protein that is one of the critical components that constitutes the CENP-O complex at the kinetochores and appears to stabilize PBIP1/CENP-U(50)/MLF1IP in the complex. This complex is important for proper recruitment of polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1) to the mitotic kinetochores. A failure in this process results in improper microtubule attachment to the kinetochores and chromosome missegregation that ultimately lead to aneuploidy.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunofluorescence: 1:100-1:500
ELISA: 1:20,0001:30,000
Western Blot: 1:2,000-1:2,500
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.
