SH2-containing inositol phosphatase 1 (SHIP) is a 145kDa hemopoietic-specific phosphatase that hydrolyzes phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-triphosphate to phosphatidylinositol-3,4-bisphosphate. SHIP has been shown to bind directly a phosphorylated motif, immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motif (ITIM), present in the cytoplasmic domain of FcgammaRIIB1 (1). Also, results demonstrate that FcgammaRIIB use SHIP1 to inhibit pathways shared by receptor tyrosine kinases and immunoreceptors to trigger cell proliferation and cell activation, respectively (2).

Western Blot: 1:50,000
Flow Cytometry: 1:20
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
