Purified Mouse Anti-KAP3A
Purified Mouse Anti-KAP3A

Western blot analysis of KAP3A on a SW13 cell lysate (Human adrenal gland carcinoma; ATCC CCL-105) (left). Lane 1:1:250, lane 2: 1:500, lane 3: 1:1000 dilution of the mouse anti- KAP3A antibody.

Immunofluorescent staining of SH-SY5Y cells (right). Cells were seeded in a 384 well collagen coated Microplates (Material # 353962) at ~ 8,000 cells per well.  After overnight incubation, cells were stained using the Triton X100 fix/perm protocol (see Recommended Assay Procedure; Bioimaging protocol link) and the anti-KAP3a antibody.  The second step reagent was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti mouse Ig (Invitrogen)(pseudo colored green). Cell nuclei were counter stained with Hoechst 33342 (pseudo colored blue). The image was taken on a BD Pathway™  855 or 435 Bioimager System using a 20x objective and merged using the BD AttoVison ™ software.  This antibody also stained SK-N-SH, C6, U87 and U373 cells using both the Triton X100 and methanol fix/perm protocols (see Recommended Assay Procedure; Bioimaging protocol link).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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. This antibody has been developed and certified for the bioimaging application. However, a routine bioimaging test is not performed on every lot. Researchers are encouraged to titrate the reagent for optimal performance.
  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.

14/KAP3A

KAP3 (kinesin superfamily-associated protein 3) was identified as an accessory protein for the microtubule translocator kinesin and, independently, as SMAP (Smg GDS-associated protein). Alternative splicing of KAP3 mRNA results in proteins of 793 amino acids (KAP3A) and 772 amino acids (KAP3B). KAP3 protein reportedly is highly expressed in brain and testis and displays an apparent molecular weight of 100 kDa. Analysis of its primary structure reveals that KAP3A contains nine repeats of the Arm domain (40 amino acids). This domain is characteristic of the Armadillo family of proteins that includes armadillo, β-catenin, plakoglobin, importin, APC, and pp120. In addition, KAP3/SMAP is a substrate for v-src kinase. Phosphorylation of KAP3/SMAP decreases its assocation with Smg GDS.

Purified
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.
