Application Abreviews Notes
IP 1/250.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC-Fr.
  • Target

    • FunctionWeakly binds calcium but binds zinc very tightly-distinct binding sites with different affinities exist for both ions on each monomer. Physiological concentrations of potassium ion antagonize the binding of both divalent cations, especially affecting high-affinity calcium-binding sites. Binds to and initiates the activation of STK38 by releasing autoinhibitory intramolecular interactions within the kinase. Interaction with AGER after myocardial infarction may play a role in myocyte apoptosis by activating ERK1/2 and p53/TP53 signaling.
    • Tissue specificityAlthough predominant among the water-soluble brain proteins, S100 is also found in a variety of other tissues.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the S-101 family.
      Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus.

    I am sorry to hear that you have been having difficulties with this antibody. I have read your technical questionnaire and I have a few comments. S100 beta is a very small protein. It can be difficult to detect small proteins by using western blott...
