Rat anti CCT epsilon antibody, clone PK/29/23/8d recognizes the epsilon polypeptide of the CCT chaperonin molecule complex. CCT epsilon, also known as T-complex protein 1 subunit epsilon, CCT5 or CCTε is a 540 amino acid ~60 kDa molecular chaperone. The intact CCT complex is composed of eight polypeptides in a double-ring structure. CCT is important within cells in aiding the folding of proteins including actin, tubulin and the VHL tumour suppressor protein.

Two isoforms of CCTε produced by alternative splicing have been described. Rat anti CCT epsilon antibody, clone PK/29/23/8d binds to the canonical isoform 1, binding to the truncated isoform 2 has not been evaluated (UniProt : P48643).

Mutations in the CCT5 gene can lead to the development of Neuropathy, hereditary sensory, with spastic paraplegia, autosomal recessive (HSNSP) a disease characterized by spastic paraplegia and progressive neuropathy with limb ulceration (Bouhouche et al. 2006).

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
