Technical Data
E2237-25E
EIF2C1 (Protein Argonaute-1, Argonaute1, hAgo1, Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 2C 1, eIF-2C 1, eIF2C 1, Putative RNA-binding Protein Q99, AGO1)
Description:
Required for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi). Binds to short RNAs such as microRNAs (miRNAs) or short interfering RNAs (siRNAs), and represses the translation of mRNAs which are complementary to them. Lacks endonuclease activity and does not appear to cleave target mRNAs. Also required for transcriptional gene silencing (TGS) of promoter regions which are complementary to bound short antigene RNAs (agRNAs).

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

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:16,000
Western Blot: 0.3-1ug/ml, in transfected HEK293 on ~110, 35kD bands
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.
