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.

Target description

GTPase KRas (UniProt P01116; also known as c-K-Ras, c-Ki-Ras, K-Ras 2, Ki-Ras) is encoded by the KRAS (also known as KRAS2, RASK2) gene (Gene ID 3845) in human. Ras proteins are small GTPases, which control signaling pathways for growth, proliferation, and differentiation. Mammalian genomes harbor three Ras genes (HRAS, NRAS, and KRAS) that encode four GTPases, two of which (K-Ras4A and K-Ras4B) are transcribed from the KRAS gene via two alternative fourth exons. Ras proteins share nearly identical sequence homology in sequence encoded by exons 1-3 (a.a. 1-165), while diverge in their C-terminal 24-a.a. hypervariable region (HVR) encoded by exon 4. The first 165 amino acids form the catalytic G domain that mediates GDP/GTP binding and association with effectors, exchange factors, and GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs), while the C-terminal HVR is needed for Ras membrane localization, a process necessary for Ras function. In addition to the removal of initiator methionine (Met1), Ras proteins are post-translationally modified by farnesylation of Cys186, followed by proteolytical cleavage their C-terminal end three amino acids (aa 187-189) and carboxyl methylation of the newly formed C-terminal prenylcysteine. H-Ras, N-Ras, and K-Ras4A are further palmitoylated on cysteine residue(s) near the C-terminus (Cys181/Cys184 in H-Ras, Cys181 in N- and K-Ras), while K-Ras4B lacks a palmitoylation site. Palmitoylation is required for targeting H- and N-Ras to the plasma membrane (PM), while K-Ras4A and K-Ras4B contain a series of lysines that constitute a polybasic region (PBR) capable of interacting with the inner leaflet of the PM through an electrostatic interaction. 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 rabbit monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS with 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.


120 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL. 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.
