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.
This antibody is directed against DYKDDDDK and is useful in determining its presence in over expressed proteins in various assays. The antibody recognizes DYKDDDDK fused to either the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins in transfected or transformed cells.
This agarose-conjugated antibody is optimally suited for immunoprecipitation and purification of DYKDDDDK tagged fusion proteins. 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. DYKDDDDK tag can be cleaved by the enterokinase because it contains the Enterokinase Cleavage Site (ECS). DO NOT USE A MAGNETIC STIR BAR WITH THIS PRODUCT.
