Recombinant antibody characteristics include:
• Validation in Immunoprecipitation
• Superior lot-to-lot consistency
• Extremely high specificity and sensitivity
• Recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody
• Specific for CBX5
CBX-5, or Chromobox homolog 5, is encoded by the cbx5 gene located on chromosome 12. CBX-5 is also known as Heterochromatin Protein 1 Homolog alpha (HP1 alpha). This protein is ubiquitously expressed and localized in the nucleus (1). CBX 5 is a component of the centromeric and pericentromeric heterochromatin and binds the heterochromatin to the lamin B receptor present on the inner nuclear membrane. CBX-5 also aids in epigenetic repression by binding to the methylated Lys-9 (H3K9me) residues on histone H3 tails (2).
Exceptional Consistency Saves You Time and Money
Recombinant 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 recombinant technology employed in manufacture of the antibody assures greatest degree of reliability. Staining of nonspecific proteins is virtually eliminated while very high sensitivity is achieved. Life Technologies has validated this antibody in immunoprecipitation.
High Sensitivity Lets You Detect Low Levels of Target Protein
Recombinant 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 mouse IgG – Use Like Any Other IgG Antibody
As with traditional IgG antibodies, gel electrophoresis of recombinant antibodies produces a 150 kDa band under non-reducing conditions and 50 kDa and 25 kDa bands under reducing conditions.
