PARP (46D11) Rabbit mAb (Sepharose Bead Conjugate) #6704
|IP||H M R Mk||Endogenous||116, 89||Rabbit IgG|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
PARP (46D11) Rabbit mAb (Sepharose Bead Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total full-length PARP and the large fragment (89 kDa) produced by caspase cleavage.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Gly623 of PARP protein.
Immunoprecipitation of THP-1 cell lysates, untreated or cycloheximide and TNFα-treated, using PARP (46D11) Rabbit mAb (Sepharose Bead Conjugate). The blot was probed using PARP (46D11) Rabbit mAb #9532.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is immobilized via covalent binding of primary amino groups to N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-activated sepharose beads. PARP (46D11) Rabbit mAb (Sepharose Bead Conjugate) is useful for immunoprecipitation assays. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated PARP (46D11) Rabbit mAb #9532.
PARP, a 116 kDa nuclear poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase, appears to be involved in DNA repair in response to environmental stress (1). This protein can be cleaved by many ICE-like caspases in vitro (2,3) and is one of the main cleavage targets of caspase-3 in vivo (4,5). In human PARP, the cleavage occurs between Asp214 and Gly215, which separates the PARP amino-terminal DNA binding domain (24 kDa) from the carboxy-terminal catalytic domain (89 kDa) (2,4). PARP helps cells to maintain their viability; cleavage of PARP facilitates cellular disassembly and serves as a marker of cells undergoing apoptosis (6).
