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.
  5. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.

The eps15 (EGF receptor pathway substrate clone number 15) gene was isolated using an expression cloning method designed for direct isolation of cDNAs encoding substrates of tyrosine kinases. The eps15 gene encodes a 145 kDa protein that is tyrosine phosphorylated following EGF receptor activation and this receptor directly phosphorylates purified Eps15 in vitro. Phosphorylation of Eps15 is much more efficient following EGF receptor activation versus erbB2 kinase activation, suggesting the protein is predominantly a part of an EGF receptor signaling pathway. Overexpression of Eps15 causes transformation of NIH 3T3 cells, implying Eps15 may be involved in the control of cell proliferation. Eps15 binds to the SH3 domain of Crk through its proline-rich domain at the C-terminal region. Adaptin α binds to the C-terminus of Eps15 at three different sites ranging from residues 650 to 730. Eps15, Adaptin α, and EGF receptor are co-localized at the clathrin-coated pits after receptor activation. Therefore, Eps15 may recruit EGF receptors to the clathrin-coated pits for internalization of the activated receptor.

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.
