This gene encodes a member of the sirtuin family of proteins, homologs to the yeast Sir2 protein. Members of the sirtuin family are characterized by a sirtuin core domain and grouped into four classes. The functions of human sirtuins have not yet been determined; however, yeast sirtuin proteins are known to regulate epigenetic gene silencing and suppress recombination of rDNA. Studies suggest that the human sirtuins may function as intracellular regulatory proteins with mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase activity. The protein encoded by this gene is included in class IV of the sirtuin family.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab10140 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa).Can be blocked with Human SIRT4 peptide (ab23185).|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 2 - 3 µg/ml. Steamed antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 is recommended.|
ab10140 at 2.5µg/ml staining SIRT4 in human skeletal muscle tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/ PFA fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections). Tissue underwent antigen retrieval in steam in citrate buffer pH 6.0. AP staining procedure was used for detection.
