The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 67 kDa. for 2 hours. This antibody has been tested in Western blot against the recombinant peptide used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
FunctionRequired during meiosis for separation of sister chromatids and homologous chromosomes. Proteolytic cleavage of REC8 on chromosome arms by separin during anaphase I allows for homologous chromosome separation in meiosis I and cleavage of REC8 on centromeres during anaphase II allows for sister chromatid separation in meiosis II.
Tissue specificityExpressed in testis and thymus.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the rad21 family.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Chromosome. In meiotic chromosomes, localized along axial elements in prophase from the leptotene to diplotene stages. At later prophase stages, diakinesis and metaphase I, localized along interstitial axes of chromosomes including both centromere and arm regions. No longer detected in arm regions in anaphase I but persists on centromere regions until metaphase II.
