SMC1 is a member of the evolutionary highly conserved SMC family of ATPases which play a vital role in the organization of chromosomes during mitosis. Eukaryotic SMC1 combines with SMC3, and with the two sister-chromatid cohesion proteins Scc1 and Scc3, to form the macromolecular cohesion complex, responsible for the linking of sister chromatids during metaphase. The SMC1-SMC3 heterodimer also combines with DNA polymerase E and ligase III to form the DNA recombination complex RC-1.
Suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot. Other applications not tested
Immunoprecipitation: 2-6ug/mg lysate
Western Blot: 1:500-1:5000detects a band of ~160kD in HeLa whole cell lysates.
Optimal dilution to be determined by researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and 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.
