||Rabbit Anti-MARCKS pAb; Anti MARCKS
||Myristoylated alanine-rich C kinase substrate (MARCKS) translocates from the cytosol to the plasma membrane while mononucleated myoblasts fuse to form multinucleated myotubes. Rabbit anti MARCKS is an affinity purified rabbit polyclonal and used for neuroscience and cancer research. MARCKS is a member of the calmodulin binding protein family, is localised to the plasma membrane, forming cross-links with actin filaments. Phosphorylation by protein kinase C at key serine residues results in inhibition of binding to actin, phosphatidyl serine and calmodulin.
MARCKS is thought to be involved in mitogenesis, phagocytosis and membrane trafficking.
||1 mg/ml in PBS, pH 7.4 with 0.05% sodium azide, frozen liquid
||Myristoylated alanine rich C kinase substrate
||Stable for one year at -20°C from date of shipment. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Aliquot will be stable at 4°C for 3 months.
||Briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container's cap because small volumes of antibody will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage.
