Cre Recombinase Antibody #7803
Reactivity Key: All=All species expected
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Cre Recombinase Antibody recognizes transfected levels of total Cre recombinase protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp141 of Cre recombinase protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Cre recombinase is a bacteriophage-P1 enzyme required for maintenance of the phage genome as a monomeric plasmid in the lysogenic state (1,2). This enzyme mediates a site-specific recombination between two 34 base pair loxP sites. This reaction can be carried out in vitro, indicating that it does not require accessory factors (3). The Cre/Lox system has been used for a number of in vitro and in vivo applications including targeted gene deletions (4) and gene-specific humanized animal models (5). Resolution of the crystal structure of the Cre-Lox complex revealed that two Cre molecules interact with a single Lox site (6).
