Background of the antigen Actin-depolymerizing factor (ADF), also known as destrin, is a member of the ADF/Cofilin/destrin superfamily that has the ability to rapidly depolymerize F-Actin in a stoichiometric manner. The Actin-depolymerizing activity of ADF is reversibly controlled by changes in KCl concentration but is insensitive to calcium concentration. ADF depolymerizes F-Actin by interacting directly with F-Actin protomers. ADF shares 71% sequence homology with Cofilin, however the two proteins differ in their interaction with Actin. The difference in the function of ADF and Cofilin results from the subtle difference in their amino acid sequence rather than possible differences in posttranslational modifications. As a result of different cleavage sites on ADF and Cofilin, the proteins differ in their overall tertiary folds. Sensitivity to polyphosphoinositides may be a common feature in vitro among Actin-binding proteins such as ADF and Cofilin that can bind to G-Actin and regulate the state of Actin polymerization. ADF and Cofilin are Actin-depolymerizing proteins whose activities are possibly regulated by their phosphorylation/dephosphorylation.
Purification Purified by Protein A.
Storage conditions Store this antibody in aqueous buffered solution containing 1% BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Keep refrigerated at 2 to 8 degrees Celcius for up to one year.
Properties For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Destrin Antibody, has a very high photo stability. As a result of this photo stability, it has turned into an antibody for fluorescent microscopy and FACS FLOW cytometry. It is distinguished in the FL1 of a FACS-Calibur or FACScan. Also Alexa Fluor 488 is pH stable.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
