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.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

Activity of the GTP-binding proteins is regulated by GAPs, that accelerate binding, and GTPases, that enhance the rate of GTP hydrolysis (Ras, Rho, cdc42Hs, and Rac). The isoforms of Rho, a small GTP-binding protein, regulate cellular processes such as the formation of the stress fibers, lamelipodia, and filopodia. ROKα (RhoA-binding kinase) is a Ser/Thr protein kinase that interects with the GTP-binding form of RhoA. Like RhoA, ROKα localizes at the cellular margins and colocalizes with acti filaments. The ROKα gene encodes a protein of 1302 amino acids with homology to the human myotonic kinase. Although ROKα binds to GTP-RhoA, it is not yet clear whether this interaction induces the kinase activity of ROKα.

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.
