Anti–BMI1 polyclonal antibody

Catalog #: 25210
Size: 100 µl
$280
Host Species: Rabbit
Clonality: polyclonal
Background:
BMI1 (UniProtKB/Swiss–Prot entry P35226) is a component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1–like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. The PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of lysine 119 on histone H2A, rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. BMI1 is required to stimulate the E3 ubiquitin–protein ligase activity of RNF2/RING2 in the PRC1 complex.
Description:
Polyclonal antibody raised in rabbit against mouse BMI1 (BMI1 polycomb ring finger oncogene) using two KLHconjugated synthetic peptides containing a sequence from the central and the C–terminal region of the protein, respectively.
Assay Conditions:

Determination of the antibody titer
To determine the titer of the antibody, an ELISA was performed using a serial dilution of the antibody directed against mouse BMI1 (Cat. # 25210). The plates were coated with the peptides used for immunization of the rabbit. By plotting the absorbance against the antibody dilution (Figure 1), the titer of the antibody was estimated to be 1:3,100.
