Western blot using Rockland's protein A purified anti-FKBP8 antibody shows detection of exogenous FKBP8 in 50 µg of HEK293T whole cell lysate (lane 1).  The results of peptide competition are shown in lane 2 where no specific staining is noted after the antibody is first incubated for 1h with the immunizing peptide in 5% BLOTTO prior to reaction with the membrane.  The membrane was probed with the primary antibody at a 1:1,000 dilution in 5% BLOTTO at 4° C, overnight. Personal Communication, Olga Aprelikova, CCR-NCI, Bethesda, MD.

FKBP8 Antibody Description

Background
This antibody is designed, produced, and validated as part of a collaboration between Rockland and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and is suitable for Cancer, Immunology and Nuclear Signaling research. FKBP8 (also known as FK506-binding protein 38) is a member of the immunophilin family that has been implicated to play an important role in apoptosis through its involvement in the mechanism that targets Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL to the outer mitochondrial membrane (OMM). Suppression of endogenous FKBP8 by RNAi or transfection of a mutant FKBP8 missing the transmembrane domain necessary for mitochondrial insertion, resulted in the translocation of Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL from the OMM to the cytosol. It has also been suggested that FKBP8 may play
Synonyms
38 kDa FK 506 binding protein homolog antibody, 38kDa antibody, FK506 binding protein 8 antibody, FKBP 38 antibody
Immunogen
This protein A purified antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to an internal region of human FKBP8 protein.

Peptide
Storage Condition
Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
This protein A purified antibody has been tested for use in ELISA and western blotting.  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.  Expect a band approximately 64 kDa in size corresponding to FKBP8 by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
Purity/Specifity
This product was protein A purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using protein A coupled to agarose beads.  This antibody is specific for human FKBP8 protein.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest partial cross-reactivity with FKBP8 from mouse and rat sources based on ~93% homology with the immunizing sequence.  Cross-reactivity with FKBP8 from other sources has not been determined.
