Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab45869 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Antibody detection limit dilution 1:128,000.

WB Use a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 50 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).


  • Relevance

    DEAD box proteins, characterized by the conserved motif Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp (DEAD), are putative RNA helicases. They are implicated in a number of cellular processes involving alteration of RNA secondary structure such as translation initiation, nuclear and mitochondrial splicing, and ribosome and spliceosome assembly. Based on their distribution patterns, some members of this family are believed to be involved in embryogenesis, spermatogenesis and cellular growth and division. In the process of mRNA degradation, DDX6 may play a role in mRNA decapping. It forms a complex with DCP1A, DCP2, EDC3 and EDC4/HEDLS.
