Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Drosophila, Drosophila melanogaster, Xenopus laevis
Depositors Notes: Use 1:10 in Blotto-Tween (PBS, 5% dry milk, 0.2% Tween) for Westerns or 1:1 in PBT (PBS, 0.3% Triton-X-100, and 0.5% BSA) for ovary staining. (Xue and Cooley, 1993). This antibody doesn't appear to work for immunoprecipitation. No immunoreactivity in mutant fly.
Additional Information: Kelch is a component of ring canals that regulates the flow of cytoplasm between cells. kel 1B recognizes both the short and full lenght Kelch protein.
Recommended Applications: Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry, 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.
