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.

Focal adhesions are cell structures terminal to the actin-stress fiber bundles. They attach cultured cells to their substratum or extracellular matrix. These adhesions occur through the integrin receptor molecules which link cytoskeletal proteins and extracellular matrix. The intracellular adhesion is composed of a number of proteins such as paxillin, VASP, vinculin, and the focal-adhesion kinases FAK and PYK2/CAKβ. Hic-5, also described as hydrogen peroxide inducible-mRNA, is a focal adhesion protein that binds to FAK and PYK2. It is ubiquitously expressed with the highest levels found in lung, spleen, and heart. Induction of Hic-5 is accomplished by hydrogen peroxide or TGFβ1 and is repressed in K-ras transformed cells. Like paxillin, Hic-5 is tyrosine phosphorylated in Src-transformed cells and is highly similar to paxillin in its primary structure. Both proteins contain LIM domains and LD motifs. In addition, Hic-5 localizes to focal adhesions and co-immunoprecipitates with PYK2/CAKβ in vivo. Thus, Hic-5 may be a substrate for CAKβ and play a role in signal transduction during proliferation, cell motility, and adhesion.

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.
