Product Highlight

FIX&PERM Cell Fixation and Permeabilization Kit

Flow cytometric analyses with monoclonal antibodies were so far mainly restricted to cell surface molecules. Intracellular structures such as cytoplasmic or nuclear enzymes, oncoproteins, cytokines, immunoglobulins etc. were largely excluded from such studies. Also excluded from flow cytometric studies were cytoplasmic localizations of well-established membrane molecules like CD3 and CD22, which, in their cytoplasmic form, are the most reliable lineage markers in undifferentiated leukemia. With the FIX&PERM® Kit flow cytometric analysis of intracellular antigens has become as easy as surface antigen studies. The only prerequisite is the availability of suitable antibody conjugates. Most of the available monoclonal antibody conjugates can be used with the FIX&PERM® Kit, some determinants are sensitive, however, to the fixation step involved. This and the optimal fixation time have to be tested for each reagent.

Background

Double stranded RNA specific adenosine deaminase 1 (ADAR1 or DRADA) is an enzyme involved in the editing of mammalian messenger RNAs by the site specific conversion of adenosine to inosine. ADAR 1 is thought to play a role in the editing of transcripts encoding non-NMDA glutamate receptor subunits, the 2C subtype of serotonin receptor, as well as hepatitis delta virus antigen.

Immunogen

GST fusion protein containing amino acid 1116-1176 of the rat DRADA coding sequence. The fusion protein was constructed in the pGEX-KG vector by inserting a fragment corresponding to nucleotides +3346 through +3525 of DRADA at the XbaI and XhoI sites in the vector.
