SpecificityThe antibody specifically recognises the immunising peptide in a blocking western blot. All four observed bands are blocked, showing that they are specific. There is also low background and high titre in ELISA. Please let us know if you can explain these bands.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 37 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 35 kDa).
RelevanceThe RNA interference (RNAi) pathway is initiated by processing long double-stranded RNA into small interfering RNA (siRNA). The siRNA-generating enzyme consists of DCR-2 and R2D2. R2D2 is homologous to the Caenorhabditis elegans RNAi protein RDE-4.
