Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
Application Note Specific for the ~120k DGCR8 protein phosphorylated at Ser377. Immunolabeling is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.


Form Liquid
Purification Affinity Purified
Buffer 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 0.1 mg/ml BSA and 50% Glycerol
Stabilizer 0.1 mg/ml BSA, 50% Glycerol
Storage Instruction For continuous use, store undiluted antibody at 2-8°C for up to a week. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C. Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Suggest spin the vial prior to opening. The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.

Background The Drosha-DGCR8 microprocessor complex is required for microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis. DGCR8 (DiGeorge Syndrome Critical Region 8) recognizes the RNA substrate, whereas Drosha functions as the endonuclease. DGCR8, which contains two double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-binding domains, interacts with the pri-miRNA and functions as the molecular anchor that measures the distance from the ds-RNA-ssRNA junction and directs Drosha cleavage 11bp away (Han J et al, 2006). The efficiency of Drosha cleavage increases in the presence of heme and promotes the formation of highly ordered DGCR8 structures upon binding to RNA (Faller et al, 2010).
