Within the last 30 years of research the biological roles of calcineurin have progressed from a putative inhibitor of the calmodulin dependent phosphodiesterase to the ground-breaking discovery that it is the target of immunosuppressant drugs such as cyclosporin A. As a serine/threonine protein phosphatase, calcineurin participates in a number of cellular processes and Ca2+ dependent signal transduction pathways. Calcineurin plays a key role in regulating the transcription factor NF-AT during T-cell activation, and in mediating responses of microorganisms to cation stress. Recently, this protein was studied extensively in relation to diseases such as schizophrenia and diabetes.
Full lenght bovine protein
Lyophilized protein G purified in PBS pH7.4
Recommend starting dilution:
If reconstituted with deionized water in 100 µL: WB: 1:2000; ICC: 1:200. Optimal dilution has to be determined by the user.
Lyophilized antibodies can be kept at 4ºC for up to 3 months and should be kept at -20ºC for long-term storage (2 years). To avoid freeze-thaw cycles, reconstituted antibodies should be aliquoted before freezing for long-term (1 year) storage (-80ºC) or kept at 4ºC for short-term usage (2 months). For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made with the assay buffer. After the maximum long-term storage period (2 years lyophilized or 1 year reconstituted) antibodies should be tested in your assay with a standard sample to verify if you have noticed any decrease in their efficacy.
