Application Notes


Validated Applications:
WB: 1:500 - 1:2,000 dilution

Note: many chromatin-bound proteins are not soluble in a low salt nuclear extract and fractionate to the pellet. Therefore, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for Western Blot.

Immunogen

This antibody was raised against recombinant human p53 protein.

Buffer

Purified IgG in PBS with 50% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

Background

p53 is the most important tumor suppressor in the genome. It is responsive to numerous genotoxic stresses, which activates its transcription factor activity, in turn causing cell-cycle arrest by activating expression of p21 Cip/WAF. Mutant p53 that has lost its DNA-binding function interferes with the activity of native p53 and leads to oncogenic transformation. Alternatively, transformation may be caused by overexpression of Mdm2/Hdm2, a ubiquitin ligase specific for p53, which causes its destabilization. Inactivation of p53 is often coincident with hyperactivation of NFκB (NFκB p50 and NFκB p65), both of which serve to inhibit apoptosis.

Storage

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.
