Goat anti Human GADD34 antibody recognizes the protein GADD34 (growth arrest and DNA-damage-inducible 34), also known as PPP1R15A. GADD34 is a member of a group of genes whose transcript levels are increased in response to treatment with DNA damaging agents or conditions of stress (Amundson et al. 1998). Induction of GADD34 by ionising radiation has been reported in some cell lines, regardless of p53 status (Hollander et al. 1997). Reports suggest that GADD34 may be involved in a signal transduction pathway controlling cell cycle arrest and/or apoptosis following DNA damage (Hollander et al. 2003).
Goat anti human GADD34 antibody has been used successfully for following GADD34 protein turnover in multiple cell lines and primary cells by Western blotting (Zhou et al. 2013)
Purified IgG - liquid
Antisera to GADD34 were raised by repeated immunisations of goats with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared from whole serum by affinity chromatography.
Bovine Serum Albumin
Peptide sequence AAALDLSGRRG corresponding to the C-terminus of GADD34 (NP_055145).
Approx. Protein Concentrations
