  • Product name
    Anti-Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer antibody
    See all Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer primary antibodies
  • Description
    Chicken polyclonal to Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer
  • Specificity
    This antibody recognizes Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer synthesized by a variety of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARP)-related enzymes, including PARP1, 2, 3, tankyrase, vPARP, sPARP and others. It does not cross-react with ADP-ribose, 5'-AMP, or yeast RNA as tested by ELISA. It does cross-react to bovine serum albumin due to its use as a carrier for the immunogen.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: ICC/IF, IHC-Fr, WB, ELISA, IHC-Pmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Predicted to react with a wide range of species due to sequence homology.
  • Immunogen

  • Relevance
    Poly (ADP-Ribose) is a polymer synthesized by a class of enzymes named poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARP). Using NAD+ as substrate, PARP catalyzes the formation of the polymer poly (ADP-Ribose), with chain lengths ranging from 2 to 300 residues, containing approximately 2% branching in the chain. Poly (ADP-Ribose) polymer becomes attached to nuclear proteins, and to PARP itself (automodification). Under normal conditions, cells display low basal level of poly (ADP-Ribose) polymer, which can dramatically increase in cells exposed to DNA damaging agents (irradiation, alkylation, etc.). This increase of polymer synthesis is usually transient and is followed by a rapid degradation phase with a short half life which can be less than 1 min. The low endogenous level of polymer in unstimulated cells and its rapid catabolism during DNA damage has been ascribed to high activity of the polymer catabolizing enzyme poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolyase (PARG).

  • Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer staining of untreated rat liver, with ab14460 at a concentration of 20µg/ml.

  • Predicted band size : 1 kDa

    Western blot analysis of Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer. Lane 1: control HL60 cells (75,000 cells). Lane 2: cells automodified with PARP1. Note the apparent shift in molecular weight PARP1 from 116kDa to a broad range >250kDa due to various extents of Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer automodification. ab14460 was used at a concentration of 10 µg/ml.

  • Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymer staining of livers from rats injected with diethylnitrosamine (200 mg/kg). The livers were removed and rapidly processed 10 hr later, at peak polymer induction. ab14460 was used at a concentration of 20µg/ml

  • ab14460 staining cultured human HeLa cells by ICC/IF.  Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.5% Triton X100 prior to blocking in 5% BSA for 1 hour at 20°C.  The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 20°C.  A Cy5® conjugated donkey anti-chicken antibody diluted 1/300 was used as the secondary.
