Specific for p21
The protein p21 is a tumor suppressor protein which is an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK) and is transcriptionally activated by p53. It is important in the response of cells to genotoxic stress and a major transcriptional target of p53 protein. The occurrence of p21 in the nucleus leads to the binding and inhibiting of the cyclin dependent kinases Cdk1 and Cdk2 and blocks the transition from G1 phase into S phase or from G2 phase into mitosis after DNA damage. This allows for the repair of damaged DNA. In the cytoplasm, p21 protein has an anti-apoptotic effect. It is able to bind to and inhibit caspase 3, as well as the apoptotic kinases ASK1 and JNK. p21 also exhibits a dual function in oncogenesis. It acts as a tumor suppressor and also prevents apoptosis and acts as an oncogene.
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
ABfinity™ antibodies are produced by transfection of mammaliancells with heavy and light chain antibody cDNAs. This provides you withthe highest consistency between lots, eliminating the need torevalidate your assays for each lot.
High Specificity Means More Reliable Data
The proprietary recombinant technology employed in the production ofABfinity™ antibodies means you are assured of the greatest degreeof reliability. Staining of nonspecific proteins is virtuallyeliminated while very high sensitivity is achieved. Life Technologies scientists havevalidated this antibody for Western blotting.
High Sensitivity Lets You Detect Low Levels of Target Protein
ABfinity™ antibodies demonstrate much higher sensitivity thanordinary antibodies. Proteins expressed in low levels can be detectedwith high specificity allowing you to use less of your precious samplesthan with ordinary antibodies.
Recombinant Rabbit IgG—Use Like Any Other IgG Antibody
As with traditional IgG antibodies, gel electrophoresis ofABfinity™ antibodies produces a 150 kDa band under non-reducingconditions and 50 kDa and 25 kDa bands under reducing conditions.
