Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

Induction of cAMP results in the activation of the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) which, in turn, phosphorylates and regulates downstream effectors. The localization and, hence, the specificity of PKA action is mediated by the interaction of four different PKA regulatory subunits (RIα, RIβ, RIIα, and RIIβ) and specific PKA anchoring proteins. Several proteins have been identified as PKA type I/II anchoring proteins and form a family named AKAP (A-Kinase Anchor Proteins). Several AKAPs (AKAP79/75, AKAP350, and AKAP250) associate with PKA type II and direct its localization to cortical actin, centrosomes, and filopodia. AKAP95 is a specific nuclear anchoring protein that contains two zinc finger motifs and an RII binding domain. Although AKAP95 does not interact with RIIβ, it has a high affinity for RIIα. During interphase, AKAP95 is bound to DNA. However, entry into mitosis results in AKAP95 detachment from the DNA and association with RIIα. Although the specific function of this AKAP95/RIIα heterodimer is unknown, its formation is cell cycle-dependent and may be essential for proper progression through the cell cycle.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
