This SMAD7 antibodyis to be used only for research purposes and not for diagnostics..
If you buy Antibodies supplied by NJS poly they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
An amino acid sequence from the C-terminus of human SMAD7 (YSLQRPNDHEFMQQP) was used as the immunogen for this SMAD7 antibody (100% homologous in human, mouse and rat).
The stated application concentrations are suggested starting amounts. Titration of the SMAD7 antibody may be required due to differences in protocols and secondary/substrate sensitivity.
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat ; Due to limited knowledge and inability to test the antibody against all known species, we cannot guarantee that no other cross reactivity can occur.
After reconstitution, the SMAD7 antibody can be stored for up to one month at 4oC. For long-term, aliquot and store at -20 deg. Celcius or lower. Cycles of freezing and thawing can denaturate the peptide chains of the antibodies and reduce their sensitivity and/or change their affinity. Prepare aliqotes in such a manner so that freeze-thaw cycles are minimized. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Mother against decapentaplegic drosophila homolog of 7, also known as MADH7 or SMA- AND MAD-related protein 7, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SMAD7 gene. It belongs to the SMAD family of proteins, which belong to the TGFbeta superfamily of ligands. By somatic cell hybrid analysis, Topper et al.(1997) mapped the gene to human chromosome 18. Topper et al.(1997) demonstrated that SMAD7 and SMAD6 could form complexes in endothelial cells. SMAD7 was induced in cultured vascular endothelium by fluid mechanical forces and was capable of modulating endothelial gene expression in response to both humoral and biomechanical stimuli in vitro. By FISH, Roijer et al.(1998) refined the localization to 18q21.1. Lallemand et al.(2001) showed that cells stably expressing SMAD7 had increased susceptibility to apoptosis induced by TGFB, TNFA, serum withdrawal, or loss of cell adhesion.
