Flow cytometric analysis of HeLa cells, using IκBα (L35A5) Mouse mAb (Amino-terminal Antigen) (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) (blue) compared to Mouse (MOPC-21) mAb IgG1 Isotype Control (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) #4878 (red).
|REACTIVITY||H M R Mk B Pg|
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry analysis in human cells. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated IκBα (L35A5) Mouse mAb (Amino-terminal Antigen) #4814.
Supplied in PBS (pH 7.2), less than 0.1% sodium azide and 2 mg/ml BSA. Store at 4°C. Do not aliquot the antibody. Protect from light. Do not freeze.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
NOTE: If using whole blood, lyse red blood cells and wash by centrifugation prior to fixation.

IκBα (L35A5) Mouse mAb (Amino-terminal Antigen) (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total IκBα protein.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey, Bovine, Pig
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a GST-IκBα fusion protein corresponding the amino terminus of human IκBα.
The NF-κB/Rel transcription factors are present in the cytosol in an inactive state complexed with the inhibitory IκB proteins (1-3). Activation occurs via phosphorylation of IκBα at Ser32 and Ser36 followed by proteasome-mediated degradation that results in the release and nuclear translocation of active NF-κB (3-7). IκBα phosphorylation and resulting Rel-dependent transcription are activated by a highly diverse group of extracellular signals including inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and chemokines. Kinases that phosphorylate IκB at these activating sites have been identified (8).
