Rabbit anti Human AID antibody recognizes an epitope within the C-terminal region (CT) of Activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID), a ~24 kDa homologue of the RNA-editing cytidine deaminase enzyme, APOBEC-1.

Although the molecular mechanisms by which AID acts remain unclear, a growing number of studies reveal a requirement for AID during somatic hypermutation (SHM) and class switch recombination (CSR). These genetic modification events take place within highly specialised B cell germinal centres, during the final maturation stages of B cells, giving rise to high-affinity antibodies which use CSR to switch from IgM to IgG, IgA or IgE isotypes.

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.
