 Datasheet

Product Summary:

Two antipeptide antibodies were generated in chickens against sequences shared between the mouse (AAT58219.1), rat (NP_445831.3) and human (CAA06617.1) gene products. These antibodies were affinity-purified and then mixed in equal concentrations. These antibodies have been validated with human, mouse and rat tissues.

Target Description:

Doublecortin is a microtubule-associated protein found in neuroblasts and immature neurons, especially those undergoing embryonic migrations. It was first identified as the X-chromosome-encoded gene product mutated in the human diseases Lissencephaly (in males) and Periventricular Heterotopia (in females), diseases caused by failure of neocortical neuroblast migration. The human protein itself is 360 amino acids (40,044 daltons) and contains doublecortin motifs near its N-terminus that are believed to mediate the microtubule binding.

Immunogen:

Chickens were immunized with two synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugates. These synthetic peptides corresponded to different regions of the doublecortin gene product, but are shared between the human (CAA06617.1, NCBI) and mouse (AAT58219.1, NCBI) sequences. After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, and the concentrations of the eluates adjusted to 200 ug/ml. Finally, equal volumes of these affinity-purified anti­peptide antibodies were mixed, and the preparation was filter-sterilized.
