Store vial at -20° C or below prior to opening. This vial contains a relatively low volume of reagent (25 µL). To minimize loss of volume dilute 1:10 by adding 225 µL of the buffer stated above directly to the vial. Recap, mix thoroughly and briefly centrifuge to collect the volume at the bottom of the vial. Use this intermediate dilution when calculating final dilutions as recommended below. Store the vial at -20°C or below after dilution. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing.
This antibody is reactive with Notch 1 by western blotting, Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and ELISA. An 80 kDa band corresponding to Notch 1 was observed at a 1:500 dilution. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.
This antiserum is directed against human NOTCH 1. Based on the immunogen sequence, we expect this antibody to react as well with mouse and rat NOTCH 1 (100% sequence homology). This antibody reacts with mouse Notch constructs present in lysates of HEK 293 cells. Only the cleaved intracellular (activated) form (NICD) is detected. No reactivity is detected against mouse N2, N3 or N4. The immunogen epitope is only exposed after gamma secretase cleavage and is not accessible in the uncleaved form.
