*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. The addition of 0.1% Tween 20 in the blocking buffer and primary antibody incubation buffer is also recommended to aid in detection by Western blot.
For RNA Pol II, we also offer AbFlex® RNA Pol II Recombinant Antibody (rAb). For details, see Catalog No. 91151.
This antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide containing the CTD of human RNA Polymerase II.
Purified IgG in PBS with 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.
RNA pol II (RNA polymerase II) is responsible for synthesizing messenger RNA in eukaryotes. RNA pol II contains a carboxy terminal domain composed of heptapeptide repeats that are essential for polymerase activity. These repeats contain serine and threonine residues that are phosphorylated in actively transcribing RNA polymerase. In addition, RNA pol II, in combination with several other polymerase subunits, form the DNA binding domain of the polymerase, a groove in which the DNA template is transcribed into RNA.
