Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    ELISA: 1/32000.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1.5 - 3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 41 kDa) from human heart lysates.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      Binds to the CACCC box in the beta-globin gene promoter and activates transcription.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family.
      Contains 3 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
    • Post-translational
      Ubiquitinated. Polyubiquitination involves WWP1 and leads to proteasomal degradation of this protein.

    Thank you for your enquiry. Since this KLF2 is a transcription factor, it is expected to reside in the nucleus. Therefore, it will recognize the intracellular domain. I hope this information will be helpful. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Thank you for your enquiry. No, this has not been specifically tested. The sequence of the peptide used as the immunogen is listed on the online datasheet and you can BLAST it (the BLAST link is on the online datasheet too) to see if it is likely to cross-react with other KLFs. I tried it but no similarity came up. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you for taking the time to send us your protocol details, this was very useful for me to understand your problem. We have not tested this antibody in the same samples as yours; in our hands, our positive control of human heart lysate gave a single band at the expect MW of 41kDa. Could you please clarify if you have tested in WB your samples for KLF2 before? I am wondering if the samples express a different form than the protein found in human heart lysate samples. Could you also tell me a little bit more about your blocking conditions: what you blocking with, for how long and if you added the blocking agent to the antibody dilution buffer. Sometimes blocking can prevent adequate binding of the antibody to the membrane and create non specific binding and/or no binding to the band of interest. We typically recommend a 1hr blocking step with 5%BSA or 5%milk in TBST and incubate the membrane with the primary and secondary antibodies diluted in TBST only. Please be assured that under the Abcam guarantee if you run our positive control in WB and find similar problems we will offer a replacement or refund if the antibody was purchased in the last 90days. I was unable to find an order with the reference C0144771, did you purchase the antibody through one of our distributors? This is not a problem if this is the case, we can liase with the distributor to arrange a refund or replacement if you find that the human heart lysate samples give problems too. I hope the above information will be useful, if you require further assistance please not hesitate to contact me,
