Cross-reactive species details Due to limited amount of testing and knowledge, not every possible cross-reactivity is known.
Background of the antigen Cell adhesion molecules influence cell growth, differentiation, embryogenesis, immune response and cancer metastasis by networking information from the extracellular matrix to the cell. Sidekick-1 (SDK1) is a 2,213 amino acid single-pass membrane protein that functions as a cell adhesion molecule by guiding axonal terminals to specific synapses in developing neurons. Existing as three alternatively spliced isoforms, Sidekick-1 is expressed in retinal neurons and contains thirteen fibronectin type-III domains and six Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. Sidekick-1 expression is upregulated in glomeruli of patients with HIV-associated nephropathy, where it leads to podocyte dysfunction. The gene encoding Sidekick-1 maps to human chromosome 7p22.2 and murine chromosome 5 G2.
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 Sidekick 1 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.
