ABfinity™ antibody characteristics include:
- Validation in Western blot and indirect ELISA
- Superior lot-to-lot consistency
- Extremely high specificity and sensitivity
- Recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody
STAT6 (Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription 6) belongs to the STAT protein family, which in response to cytokines and growth factors are phosphorylated by receptor-associated kinases, and act as transcription factors. When induced by CD80 or CD86 ligand binding, phosphorylated CD28 recruits and activates STAT6 which in turn translocates to the nucleus and binds to a STAT6-responsive element on the human IL-4 promoter. STAT6 is crucial for IL-4-mediated biological responses, and is also involved in processes mediated by IL-13, a cytokine related to IL-4. IL4 and IL13 have been shown to induce the production of IgE, a major mediator in an allergic response. STAT6 occurs naturally in two isoforms: STAT6a and STAT6c.
Exceptional Consistency Saves You Time and Money
ABfinity™ antibodies are produced by transfection of mammalian cells with heavy and light chain antibody cDNAs. This provides you with the highest consistency between lots, eliminating the need to revalidate your assays for each lot.
High Specificity Means More Reliable Data
The proprietary recombinant technology employed in the production of ABfinity™ antibodies means you are assured of the greatest degree of reliability. Staining of nonspecific proteins is virtually eliminated while very high sensitivity is achieved. Invitrogen has validated this antibody in Western blotting.
High Sensitivity Lets You Detect Low Levels of Target Protein
ABfinity™ antibodies demonstrate much higher sensitivity than ordinary antibodies. Proteins expressed in low levels can be detected with high specificity allowing you to use less of your precious samples than with ordinary antibodies.
Recombinant Rabbit IgG—Use Like Any Other IgG Antibody
As with traditional IgG antibodies, gel electrophoresis of ABfinity™ antibodies produces a 150 kDa band under non-reducing conditions and 50 kDa and 25 kDa bands under reducing conditions.
