This product is the carrier-free version of product #25361. All data were generated using the same antibody clone in the standard formulation which contains BSA and glycerol.
This formulation is ideal for use with technologies requiring specialized or custom antibody labeling, including fluorophores, metals, lanthanides, and oligonucleotides. It is not recommended for ChIP, ChIP-seq, CUT&RUN, or CUT&Tag assays. If you require a carrier-free formulation for chromatin profiling, please contact us. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Supplied in 1X PBS, BSA and Azide Free.
For standard formulation of this product see product #25361.
Store at -20°C. This product will freeze at -20°C so it is recommended to aliquot into single-use vials to avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles. A slight precipitate may be present and can be dissolved by gently vortexing. This will not interfere with antibody performance.
Specificity / Sensitivity
SLP-76 (E4N7E) Rabbit mAb (BSA and Azide Free) recognizes endogenous levels of total SLP-76 protein.
This antibody recognizes mouse SLP-76 protein and is also reactive with human SLP-76; however, this antibody is not suggested for immunohistochemical analysis of human tissues. Instead, SLP-76 (D1R1A) Rabbit mAb #70896 is recommended for IHC analysis of human tissue samples. Non-specific staining was observed in mouse testis by immunohistochemistry.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro241 of mouse SLP-76 protein.
SH2 domain-containing leukocyte protein of 76 kDa (SLP-76) is a hematopoietic adaptor protein that is important in multiple biochemical signaling pathways and necessary for T cell development and activation (1). ZAP-70 phosphorylates SLP-76 and LAT as a result of TCR ligation. SLP-76 has amino-terminal tyrosine residues followed by a proline-rich domain and a carboxy-terminal SH2 domain. Phosphorylation of Tyr113 and Tyr128 result in recruitment of the GEF Vav and the adaptor protein Nck (2). TCR ligation also leads to phosphorylation of Tyr145, which mediates an association between SLP-76 and Itk, which is accomplished in part via the proline-rich domain of SLP-76 and the SH3 domain of Itk (3). Furthermore, the proline-rich domain of SLP-76 binds to the SH3 domains of Grb2-like adaptor Gads (3,4). In resting cells, SLP-76 is predominantly in the cytosol. Upon TCR ligation, SLP-76 translocates to the plasma membrane and promotes the assembly of a multi-protein signaling complex that includes Vav, Nck, Itk, and PLCγ1 (1). The expression of SLP-76 is tightly regulated; the protein is detected at very early stages of thymocyte development, increases as thymocyte maturation progresses, and is reduced as cells mature to CD4+ CD8+ double-positive thymocytes (5).
