ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.


UBIQUITIN (UB) rabbit polyclonals (see also monoclonals against ubiquitin)

-see also new Goat anti-ubiquitin L1 antibody


Rabbit anti-UBIQUITIN (Human/Mouse/Rat/Bovine)

cat# RDI-UBIQTabrX       $406.00/0.5ml

       RDI-UBIQTabrX-1    $688.00/1ml

Presentation: Purified antibody fraction from rabbit anti-serum. Prepared in 10mM PBS, pH 7.4, with 0.2% BSA and 0.09% sodium azide.

Epitope: Not determined

Reactivity: Human, Cow, Mouse, and Rat. Others-not known.

Immunogen: Ubiquitin isolated from cow erythrocytes

Uses: -Western blot: 1:100 for 2 hrs RT (approx 8.5kda)

   -for paraffin sections, requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer pH6.0 for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes. -approx ab dilution 1:50-1:100 for 1 hr RT

Positive Control: Human brain from patient with Alzheimers disease

Localization: Cellular Localization: Nuclear, cytoplasmic, and cell membrane.

Background: Ubiquitin (Ub) plays a very important role in regulated non-lysosomal ATP dependent protein degradation. The protein to be degraded is conjugated to Ub and the ubiquinated protein is then selectively degraded by a 26S complex, multicatalytic cytosolic and nuclear protease termed proteasome. The Ub-proteasome proteolytic pathway, which is a complex process, is implicated to be of great importance for regulating numerous cellular processes.

DATA SHEET: Rabbit anti-Ubiquitin (polyclonal)

Background: Ubiquitin protein conjugates associated with filamentous inclusions or in dot like strcutures (lyosome-releated organelles) are characteristic of the major human idiopathic neurodegenerative diseases. Dot-like strcutures are aslo a feature of the transmissable neurodegenerative diseases.This antibody detects neurofibrillart TANGLES in Alzheimer's  disease, Lewy bodies in Lewy Body disease, Rosenthal fibres in astrocytomas, Mallory bodies in Alcoholic Liver Disease. Also detects dot-like structures in the white matter of normal aging brain.
