Technical Data
FAK (Focal Adhesion Associated Protein Tyrosine Kinase, BC3)
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunocytochemistry: 10ug/ml shows positive immunostaining for Fak in Ref 52 cells fixed with 3.7% formaldehyde.
Western Blot: 0.5-2ug/ml detects FAK in RIPA lysates from murine 3T3 and previously in human A431 RIPA cell lysate. 3T3 cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with F0019-56 (1ug/ml). Proteins were visualized using an IgG (HRP) goat anti-rabbit and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Immunoprecipitation: 4ug immunoprecipitates FAK from 500ug of murine 3T3 RIPA lysate.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Recommended Secondary Antibodies:
I1904-39: IgG, X-Adsorbed (HRP) Pab Gt xRb
I1904-40A: IgG, H&L, X-Adsorbed (HRP) Pab Gt xRb
I1904-46Q: IgG, H&L (HRP) Pab Gt xRb
