Life Technologies' oligoclonal antibodies are a pool of monoclonal rabbit IgG antibodies targeted against a specific antigen. Oligoclonal 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.
Oligoclonal Antibody Advantages Include:
- Superior lot-to-lot consistency
- Extremely high specificity and sensitivity
- Validation by Invitrogen
I kappa B-alpha (Inhibitor of Nuclear Factor-κB α isoform), also known as nuclear factor of kappa light polypeptide gene enhancer in B-cells inhibitor alpha (NFKBIA), is a 40 kDa protein. Its main function is to inhibit NF-κB activity when this activity is not required. Inhibition occurs via protein-protein interaction between IκBα proteins and NF-κB dimers in the cytosol. The interaction of IκBα with NF-κB masks the nuclear localization sequence of NF-κB, preventing translocation of NF-κB to the nucleus. A variety of stimuli can activate gene expression by liberating NF-κB through the degradation of IκBα. These stimuli include the proinflammatory cytokines TNF-α and IL-1β, chemokines, PMA, growth factors, LPS, UV irradiation, viral infection, as well as various chemical and physical stresses. In humans, the IκBα gene is located on the q arm of chromosome 14.
Obtain More Reliable Data
The proprietary recombinant technology employed in the production of Life Technologies' oligoclonal antibodies means you are assured of the greatest degree of reliability. Staining of nonspecific proteins is virtually eliminated while very high sensitivity is achieved
Detect Low Levels of Target Protein
Life Technologies' oligoclonal 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 rabbit oligoclonal antibodies produces a 150 kDa band under non-reducing conditions and 50 kDa and 25 kDa bands under reducing conditions.
