This antibody was produced in mice by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the FLAG™ epitope tag peptide DYKDDDDK (Asp-Tyr-Lys-Asp-Asp-Asp-Asp-Lys) conjugated to KLH using maleimide. Residues of glycine and cysteine were added to the termini to facilitate coupling.
This antibody is directed against the FLAG epitope tag and is useful in determining its presence in over expressed proteins in various assays. The antibody recognizes the FLAG epitope tag (Asp-Tyr-Lys-Asp-Asp-Asp-Asp-Lys) fused to either the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins in transfected or transformed cells.
This antibody is optimally suited for monitoring the expression of DYKDDDDK tagged fusion proteins. As such, this antibody can be used to identify fusion proteins containing the DYKDDDDK epitope. The antibody recognizes the epitope tag fused to either the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins. The epitope tag peptide sequence was first derived from the 11-amino-acid leader peptide of the gene-10 product from bacteriophage T7. DYKDDDDK is the most commonly used hydrophilic octapeptide tag. The applications listed have been tested for the unconjugated form of this product. Other forms have not been tested.
