Rabbit anti DNA PKcs antibody recognizes the human DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit, also known as DNA-PKcs, DNPK1 or p460. DNA PKcs is a 4128 amino acid ~460 kDa nuclear protein encoded by the PRKDC gene, acting as a molecular sensor for DNA damage. Mutation of the PRKDC gene can result in Immunodeficiency 26 with or without neurologic abnormalities (IMD26) (van der Burg et al. 2009).

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.
