General description

ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected Rac1 in HeLa, A431, HUVEC , and NIH 3T3 cells.

Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user
Anti-Rac1, clone 23A8 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZMS1023, is a recombinant Mouse monoclonal antibody that specifically targets Rac1 and is tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.

Target description

Ras-related C3 botulinum toxin substrate 1 (UniProt: P63000; also known as EC:3.6.5.2, Cell migration-inducing gene 5 protein, Ras-like protein TC25, p21-Rac1) is encoded by the RAC1 (also known as TC25, MIG5) gene (Gene ID: 5879) in human. Rac1 is a plasma membrane-associated small GTPase that cycles between active GTP-bound and inactive GDP-bound states. In its active state, it binds to a variety of effector proteins to regulate cellular responses. Two isoforms of Rac1 have been described that are produced by alternative splicing. Rac1b differs from Rac1a in that it has an additional 19 amino acids and is found in various tumors, such as breasts and colorectal. Rac1b has an accelerated GEF-independent GDP/GTP exchange and an impaired GTP hydrolysis, which is restored partially by GTPase-activating proteins. It can bind to the GTPase-binding domain of PAK, but not full-length PAK in a GTP-dependent manner, suggesting that the insertion does not completely abolish effector interaction. Isoform B is predominantly identified in skin and epithelial tissues from the intestinal tract. Its expression is elevated in colorectal tumors at various stages of neoplastic progression, as compared to their respective adjacent tissues. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.

Physical form

Purified recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS, 5% Trehalose, normal appearance a coarse or translucent resin. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.

Reconstitution

30 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.

Storage and Stability

Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
