|Reactivity||Human Mouse Rat|
|Storage buffer||10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and less than 0.02% sodium azide.|
|Storage||Store at –20°C.|
1. Aspirate media from cultures and Wash the cells with 1X PBS. 2. Lyse cells by adding 1X SDS sample buffer and transfer the extract to a microcentrifuge tube. Keep onice. 3. Sonicate for 10–15 sec to complete cell lysis and shear DNA. 4. Heat a 20 µl sample to 95–100°C for 5 min, then cool on ice. 5. Centrifuge for 5 min (with Microcentrifuge). 6. Load appropriate volumes of samples onto SDS-PAGE gel (loading quantity of protein sample depends on the concentration of extracted proteins). NOTE: At the same time, please load the pre-stained molecular weight markers to determine molecular weights and verify electrotransfer. 7. Electrotransfer to nitrocellulose/PVDF membrane.
Membrane Blocking and Antibody Incubations
1. (Optional) After transfer, wash the transferred membrane with TBS for 5 min at room temperature. 2. Incubate the membrane in the blocking buffer for 1 hr at room temperature. 3. Wash three times for 5 min each with TBST.
b. Antibodies Incubation
1. Incubate membrane and primary antibody (at the appropriate dilution and diluent recommended) in a primary antibody dilution buffer with gentle agitation overnight at 4°C. 2. Wash three times for 5 min each with TBST. 3. Incubate membrane with an appropriate second antibodydissolved in the blocking buffer with gentle agitation for 1 hr at room temperature. 4. Wash three times for 5 min each with TBST. 5. Proceed with detection.
Detection of Proteins
1. After antibodies incubation, Wash membrane three times for 5 minutes in TBST. 2. PrepareECL Reagent (or other chromogenic agents/substrate according to your second antibody). Mix well. 3. Incubate substrate with membrane for 1 minute, remove excess solution (membrane remains wet), wrap in plastic and expose to X-ray film.
|Specificity||TRAF2 Rabbit Recombinant mAb detects endogenous level of total TRAF2.|
|Background||TNF receptor-associated factor 2 (TRAF2) is a member of TRAF family of proteins. It is an important signal transducer for a wide range of TNF receptor superfamily members, in cluding TNFR1, TNFR2, CD40 and other lymphocyte costimulatory receptors, RANK/TRANCE-R, EDAR, LTβR, LMP-1 and IRE1. Therefore, it regulate diverse physiological roles, ranging from T and B cell signaling and inflammatory responses to organogenesis and cell survival. TRAF2 is heavily regulated by ubiquitin signals, and many of the signaling functions of TRAF2 are mediated through its RING domain and likely its own role as an E3 ubiquitin ligase. TRAF2 recruits cIAPs to the TNFα-TNFR1 signaling complex, facilitating NF-κB activation. TRAF2 also supports K48-linked ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation of death-receptor-activated caspase-8, curbing apoptosis. It is a necroptosis suppressor in vitro and in vivo.|
