For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody datasheet or product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
From sample preparation to detection, the reagents you need for your Western Blot are now in one convenient kit: #12957 Western Blotting Application Solutions Kit
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

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.

RecQ4 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total RecQ4 protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids near the amino terminus of human RecQ4. Antibodies are purified by peptide affinity chromatography.
RECQL4 is a member of the RecQ family of DNA helicases that plays an important role in global genomic stability. There are five members of this family in humans, and mutations in three of these, BLM, WRN and RECQL4, give rise to disorders that are characterized by premature aging and a predisposition to cancer (1). Despite the presence of a helicase domain, no helicase activity has been reported for RECQL4. Rather, RECQL4 has an ATPase function that is stimulated by ssDNA, and a ssDNA annealing activity that is inhibited by RPA (2). RECQL4 has been reported to interact with ubiquitin ligases UBR1 and UBR2 (3). The role of RECQL4 in tumor suppression and the maintenance of genomic integrity has been attributed to it’s activities associated with the regulation of DNA replication, and DNA recombination and repair (4-6).
Mutations in the RECQL4 gene have been identified in a subset of patients with Rothmund-Thomson syndrome (RTS) - a disorder characterized by growth deficiency, skin and skeletal abnormalities, and cancer predisposition. Two more autosomal recessive disorders have been associated with RECQL4 gene mutations: RAPADILINO, and Baller-Gerold syndromes (4).
