Cross-reactive species details Due to limited amount of testing and knowledge, not every possible cross-reactivity is known.
Background of the antigen STRA6 is a 667 amino acid, multi-pass cell membrane protein. Stra6 functions as a cell-surface receptor for the complex retinol-retinol binding protein (RBP/RBP4). Ultimately increasing cellular retinol uptake from the retinol-RBP complex, Stra6 removes retinol from RBP/RPB4 and transports it across the plasma membrane, where it is metabolized. Stra6 is broadly expressed, with 4 named isoforms that exist as a result of alternative splicing events. Mutations in the gene encoding Stra6 cause Matthew-Wood Syndrome, also known as Spear Syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by anophtalmia, mild facial dysmorphism and malformations of the heart, lung and diaphragm. The Stra6 gene maps to chromosome 15q24.1.

Properties For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the STRA6 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.
