SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human, Mouse, Rat
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, WB
APPLICATIONS:ITCH antibody can be used for detection of ITCH by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/ml.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1282 - 3T3 (NIH) Cell Lysate
PREDICTED MOLECULAR WEIGHT:Predicted: 99 kDa

Observed: 99 kDa
SPECIFICITY:ITCH antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least three isoforms of ITCH are known to exist; this antibody only recognizes the two longest isoforms. This antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other members of the Nedd4 protein family.
IMMUNOGEN:ITCH antibody was raised against a 15 amino acid peptide near the amino terminus of human ITCH .

The immunogen is located within amino acids 40 - 90 of ITCH.
HOST SPECIES:Rabbit

Properties

PURIFICATION:ITCH antibody is affinity chromatography purified via peptide column.
PHYSICAL STATE:Liquid
BUFFER:ITCH antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.

Background

BACKGROUND:The Itchy E3 ubiquitin protein ligase (ITCH) is a member of the Nedd4 family of HECT domain E3 ubiquitin ligases (1). HECT domain E3 ubiquitin ligases transfer ubiquitin from E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes to protein substrates, thus targeting specific proteins for lysosomal degradation. ITCH plays a role in multiple cellular processes including erythroid and lymphoid cell differentiation and the regulation of immune responses (2). In B cells, ITCH is thought to associate with latent membrane protein 2A (LMP2A) of Epstein-Barr virus, specifically down-regulating its activity in B cell signaling (3). Mutations in this gene are a cause of syndromic multisystem autoimmune disease (4).
