Additional Information: Puromycin is a structural analog of aminoacyl tRNAs that can be incorporated into nascent polypeptide chain and blocks elongation. This antibody is used to detect the subcellular localization of actively translating ribosomes by the ribopuromycylation method (RPM), and localizes puromycylated nascent chains on ribosomes immobilized by chain elongation inhibitors in living cells prior to processing for intracellular immunofluorescence and/or western blots. RRID:AB_2619605
Recommended Applications: ELISA, FACS, Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot

Storage and Handling Recommendations
Although many cell products are maintained at 4°C for years without loss of activity, shelf-life at 4°C is highly variable.
To ensure retention of antibody activity, we recommend aliquotting the product into two parts:
1) a volume of antibody stored at 4°C to be used within two weeks.
2) the remaining product diluted with an equal volume of molecular grade glycerol and stored at -20°C.
While optimal Ig concentration for an application will vary, a good starting concentration for immunohistochemistry (IHC),
immunofluorescence(IF) and staining is 2-5 µg/ml.
For Western blots, the concentration is decreased by one order of magnitude (that is, 0.2-0.5 µg/ml).
All cell products contain the antimicrobial ProClin. See our FAQ section for additional information.
