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.

DKK1 Antibody detects transfected levels of DKK1 protein. This antibody does not cross-react with DKK2.Species Reactivity:
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Gln75 of human DKK1. Antibodies are purified by peptide affinity chromatography.
Dickkopf (DKK) family proteins consist of four members DKK1, DKK2, DKK3 and DKK4 that function as secreted Wnt antagonists by inhibiting Wnt coreceptors LRP5 and LRP6 (1,2). DKKs contain two cysteine-rich domains in which the positions of 10 cysteine residues are well conserved (3). Their expression is both temporally and spatially regulated during animal development (4). DKKs also bind with high affinity to transmembrane proteins Kremen1 and 2, which themselves also modulate Wnt signaling (5,6).
DKK1 was initially identified as an inducer of head formation in Xenopus embryos (7) and plays an important role in the regulation of bone mass (8-10). Increased levels of DKK1 are found in the majority of lung cancers, esophageal squamous cell carcinomas, and hormone-resistant breast cancers (11,12), while DKK1 expression is decreased in malignant melanoma and colorectal cancers (13,14).
