Protein Kinase, Interferon-Inducible Double Stranded RNA Dependent Activator (PRKRA, PACT, RAX)
Description:
Protein kinase, interferon-inducible double stranded RNA dependent activator (PACT, PRKRA) is a proapoptotic cellular protein activator of PKR, a double-stranded RNA-dependent protein kinase (1). PACT is reported to be stress-activated, and a physiologic activator that couples transmembrane stress signals and protein synthesis (2). Overexpression of PACT in cells causes enhanced sensitivity to stress-induced apoptosis. It is expressed at high levels in colonic epithelial cells, especially as they exit the cell cycle and enter an apoptotic program (3).

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:5000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:100-1:250
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. 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.

Manufactured incorporating RabMAb® technology under Epitomics US patents, No 5,675,063 and 7,429,487, owned by Abcam.
