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.

Vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP), a substrate for cAMP- and cGMP-dependent kinases, is associated with actin filaments, focal adhesions, and dynamic membrane regions. VASP is composed of several distinct domains: a central L-proline-rich domain contains a GPPPPP motif as a single copy and as a three-fold tandem repeat, as well as three conserved phosphorylation sites for cyclic nucleotide-dependent protein kinases (Ser157, Ser239, and Thr278). A C-terminal domain contains a repetitive mixed-charge cluster which is predicted to form an α-helix. The C-terminal domain appears to be responsible for anchoring at focal adhesion sites. VASP has been shown to be a ligand for profilins. Profilins bind to the poly-L-proline motifs of VASP and it is postulated that these two molecules act in concert to convey signal transduction to actin filament formation.

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.
