This Flotillin 1 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 middle region of human FLOT1 (KKAAYDIEVNTRRAQA) was used as the immunogen for this Flotillin 1 antibody.
The stated application concentrations are suggested starting amounts. Titration of the Flotillin 1 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 Flotillin 1 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.
Flotillin 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FLOT1 gene. The International Radiation Hybrid Mapping Consortium mapped the gene to chromosome 6. Bickel et al.(1997) found that mouse Flot1 behaves as a resident integral membrane protein of caveolae. It consistently copurified with Flot2 and with caveolin-1 in the purification of caveolin-rich membranes. Hazarika et al.(1999) found that stable transfection of Flot1, which they called ESA/flotillin-2, in COS-1 cells induced filopodia formation and changed the epithelial morphology to that of neuronal cells. Santamaria et al.(2005) found that prostate tumor overexpressed gene-1 interacted with Flotillin1 in detergent-insoluble membrane fractions. Flotillin1 colocalized with PTOV1 at the plasma membrane and in the nucleus, and it entered the nucleus concomitant with PTOV1 shortly before initiation of S phase.
