Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and less than 0.02% sodium azide. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.
TRAF5 (D3E2R) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total TRAF5 protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding His383 of human TRAF5 protein.
TRAFs (TNF receptor-associated factors) are a family of multifunctional adaptor proteins that bind to surface receptors and recruit additional proteins to form multiprotein signaling complexes capable of promoting cellular responses (1-3). Members of the TRAF family share a common carboxy-terminal "TRAF domain", which mediates interactions with associated proteins; many also contain amino-terminal Zinc/RING finger motifs. The first TRAFs identified, TRAF1 and TRAF2, were found by virtue of their interactions with the cytoplasmic domain of TNF-receptor 2 (TNFRII) (4). The six known TRAFs (TRAF1-6) act as adaptor proteins for a wide range of cell surface receptors and participate in the regulation of cell survival, proliferation, differentiation, and stress responses.
TRAF5 regulates signaling through binding to the cytoplasmic domains of TNFR famly members including CD40, CD27, CD30, OX40, and lymphotoxin-β receptor (5-10). Overexpression of TRAF5 induces NF-κB activation. Cytoplasmic aggregates of TRAF5, as well as TRAF2, were reported in Hodgkin-Reed-Sternberg cells, resulting in constitutive NF-κB activation (11).
Studies of TRAF5 deficient mice suggest that it plays an important role in limiting Th2 immune responses that triggers T-cell mediated inflammatory diseases and asthma (12). Further studies indicate that TRAF5 binds to the IL-6 receptor gp130 and negatively controls Th17 differentation (13). In B-cells, TRAF5 negatively regulates toll-like receptor (TLR) mediated cytokine and antibody production (14).
