This product detects a band of approximately 130kDa in mouse EL4 cell lysates.

Specificity

This product recognizes an epitope within the internal region of the 130kDa tumour suppressor protein, Tumour sclerosis complex 1 (TSC1). Mutation within the TSC1 gene is responsible for Tuberous sclerosis (TSC), an autosomal dominant genetic disorder associated with the development of benign tumors (hamartomas), a condition also induced by mutation of the Tumour sclerosis complex 2 (TSC2) gene.

Many proteins have been shown to play a role in the regulation of the serine/threonine kinase known as target of rapamycin (TOR), a central component in a complex signaling pathway which controls cell proliferation and cell cycle progression. Negative regulation of TOR activity occurs following the over-expression of the TSC1 and TSC2 gene products, hamartin and tuberin. These act by suppressing the phosphorylation of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E binding protein 1 (4EBP1) and ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K), downstream targets of TOR involved in mRNA translation. Furthermore the TOR activator protein Rheb has been identified as a target of TSC1-TSC2 complexes.

This product has been reported as suitable for use in IHC on mouse EL4 cell cytospins at 2ug/ml.

Storage/Stability

Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
