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.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

eIF-4 proteins are required for mRNA recognition and acceleration of translation during protein synthesis. This group of proteins consists of the RNA helicase, eIF-4A; the RNA-binding protein, eIF-4B; and the cap binding proteins, eIF-4E and eIF-4γ. eIF-4γ, also referred to as p220, is a 1396 amino acid polypeptide that migrates as a 220kDa. eIF-4γ has several potential glycosylation and phosphorylation sites that could account for its anomalous electrophoretic mobility. In addition, eIF-4γ is rapidly degraded in picornavirus-infected cells due to its content of multiple PEST sequences.

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.
