Nod2, NT (Caspase Recruitment Domain 15, CARD15)
Description:
Description:
Apaf-1 and NOD1 are members of a new family (1), which are involved in the regulation of apoptosis and immune response. Each of them contains a caspase recruitment domain (CARD) and a nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain (NOD). A third member in this family was recently identified and designated NOD2 (2). NOD2 interacts with RICK via a homophilic CARD-CARD interaction. NOD2 activates NF- B, which is regulated by its carboxy-terminal
leucine-rich repeat domain that acts as an intracellular receptor for components of bacteria. The variants of NOD2, either a frameshift or a missense, were associated with Crohns disease (3,4) that is a main type of chronic inflammatory bowel disease.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 2-4ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Jurkat cell lysate

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), 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.
