Western blot analysis of p21 expression in human endothelial cells (lanes 1 & 2). The blots were probed with mouse monoclonal anti-p21 at 1:250 (lane 1) and 1:1000 (lane 2).
Bulk Order Anti-p21/CIP1/WAF1 Antibody
The tumor suppressor protein p21/CIP1/WAF1 acts as an inhibitor of cell cycle progression. It functions in stoichiometric relationships forming heterotrimeric complexes with cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinases. In association with CDK2 complexes, it serves to inhibit kinase activity and block progression through G1/S. However, p21 may also enhance assembly and activity in complexes of CDK4 or CDK6 and cyclin D. The carboxy-terminal region of p21 is sufficient to bind and inhibit PCNA, a subunit of DNA polymerase, and may coordinate DNA replication with cell cycle progression. Upon UV damage or during cell cycle stages when cdc2/cyclin B or CDK2/cyclin A are active, p53 is phosphorylated and upregulates p21 transcription via a p53-responsive element. Protein levels of p21 are downregulated through ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation.
Antigen Affinity Purified
ICC, IHC, IP, WB
Clone M513 was generated from a full length recombinant human p21 protein. The antibody detects human p21.
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% NaN3 and 50% glycerol
The antibody detects a 21 kDa* protein corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of p21 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of human endothelial cells (HUVEC), HeLa cells, and Fibroblasts. The antibody is also useful for immunoprecipitation and immunofluorescent labeling in human cells.
