Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-NUMB antibody (ab14140)
Additional notesab14141 is the immunising peptide for Numb antibody ab14140 and can be used for blocking studies.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

FunctionPlays a role in the process of neurogenesis. Required throughout embryonic neurogenesis to maintain neural progenitor cells, also called radial glial cells (RGCs), by allowing their daughter cells to choose progenitor over neuronal cell fate. Not required for the proliferation of neural progenitor cells before the onset of neurogenesis. Also involved postnatally in the subventricular zone (SVZ) neurogenesis by regulating SVZ neuroblasts survival and ependymal wall integrity. May also mediate local repair of brain ventricular wall damage.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 PID domain.
Post-translational modificationsIsoform 1 and isoform 2 are ubiquitinated by LNX leading to their subsequent proteasomal degradation (By similarity). Ubiquitinated; mediated by SIAH1 and leading to its subsequent proteasomal degradation.
