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
STAT6 (Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription 6), belongs to the family of STAT proteins, also known as signal transducers and activators of transcription, which in response to cytokines and growth factors undergo phosphorylation by receptor-associated kinases and act as transcription factors once they are translocated to the nucleus. When induced by CD80 or CD86 ligand binding, phosphorylated CD28 recruits and activates STAT6. Activated STAT6 translocates to the nucleus and binds to a STAT6-responsive element on the human IL-4 promoter. STAT6 plays a crucial role in IL-4 mediated biological responses, and it has also been demonstrated to be 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.
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.
