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.

SWI/SNF complexes facilitate gene activation and transcription factor binding byaltering repressive chromatin structures. In mammals, SWI/SNF complexes are present inmutliple forms that include 9-12 proteins called BRG1-associated factors (BAFs), whichrange in molecular weight from 47 to 250 kDa. BAF60 is the homologue of the yeastSWP70 subunit of the yeast SWI/SNF complex that regulates glucocorticoidtranscription. Three isoforms of BAF60 are BAF60a, BAF60b, and BAF60c. BAF60a isubiquitously expressed and is present in the 200-kDa BRG1 complex. BAF60b andBAF60c are expressed preferentially in muscle and pancreas and may be subunits of adistinct complex that shares some subunits with BRG1 complex. In hematopoietic cells,a SWI/SNF related-complex (PYR) contains BAF57, INI1, BAF60a, and BAF170. This complex binds a 250 bp pyrimidine-rich element between the fetal and adult ß-globingenes and may facilitate human fetal-to-adult globin gene switching. Thus, BAF60proteins are components of multiple SWI/SNF complexes that regulate the transcriptionof various genes.

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.
