Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is testis tissue.
Apaf-1 is a cytosolic protein that rests in a latent state until bound by cytochrome c (Apaf-2). The resulting Apaf-1/cytochrome c complex associates with the zymogen form of caspase-9 (Apaf-3) in the presence of dATP or ATP, promoting the autocatalytic activation of caspase-9. This antibody will be useful in studies of the activation of caspases through Apaf-1 and also in metastatic melanomas where Apaf-1 is inactivated which leads to defects in the execution of apoptotic cell death.
