HOST SPECIES:Rabbit
SPECIES REACTIVITY: Human
HOMOLOGY: Predicted species reactivity based on immunogen sequence: Rat: (94%), Mouse: (88%)
IMMUNOGEN: AKAP4 antibody was raised against a 17 amino acid peptide near the amino terminus of human AKAP4.

The immunogen is located within the first 50 amino acids of AKAP4.
TESTED APPLICATIONS: ELISA, IF, IHC-P, WB
APPLICATIONS: AKAP4 antibody can be used for detection of AKAP4 by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/ml. Antibody can also be used for Immunohistochemistry starting at 5 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.

Antibody validated: Western Blot in human samples; Immunohistochemistry in human samples and Immunofluorescence in human samples. All other applications and species not yet tested.
SPECIFICITY: AKAP4 antibody is human specific. At least three isoforms are known to exist; this antibody will detect the two longest isoforms.

psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:The A-kinase anchor proteins (AKAPs) are a group of structurally diverse proteins, which have the common function of binding to the regulatory subunit of protein kinase A (PKA) and confining the holoenzyme to discrete locations within the cell (1). AKAP4, also known as hAKAP82, is a major sperm fibrous sheath protein that localizes to the entire length of the flagellum of human sperm (2). It has been suggested that AKAP4 plays multiple roles in sperm motility and regulation of signal transduction pathways (2). AKAP4 has also been postulated to be a potential biomarker for breast cancer (3).
