  • Cdk2 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Hela whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to Cdk2 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Hela whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab7954.
    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
    Band: 34kDa: Cdk2

Thank you for contacting us. I ran the Schmidtea Mediterranea sequence against the immunogen sequences for our different Cdk2 antibodies and unfortunately found none that are predicted to react. The most homology was with ab64669, which came to 55%. Ge...
