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.

The GTP binding regulatory proteins (G proteins) consist of three subunits: α, β, and γ. These heterotrimeric proteins function at membranes to relay signals from cell surface receptors to intracellular effectors. The α subunit is unique for each G protein and contains the site of GTP binding and hydrolysis, as well as sites for receptor and effector interactions. The βγ subunit complex interacts directly with receptors and the α subunit. The Gα protein transducin (Gαt) contains 350 amino acids and has been extensively studied as a model for G protein function. Gαt requires GTP in order to bind to its effectors. In the process of effector-Gαt binding, GTP is hydrolyzed and the βγ subunits are displaced. The free Gαt-GDP then reassociates with the βγ subunits and re-loads GTP to repeat the cycle.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
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.
