Structural Maintenance of Chromosome (SMC) proteins are required for nuclear processes, including chromosome condensation, chromatid cohesion, and DNA repair. Eukaryotic proteins are capable of binding DNA and possess a DNA-stimulated ATPase activity.
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.
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 and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), 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.
