Western blot analysis was performed on whole cell extracts (30 ug lysate) of U-87 MG (Lane1), MDCK (Lane2), CaCo-2 (Lane 3) and A549 (Lane4). The blots were probed with Integrin alpha 6 Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody (Product# 701178, 2-3 ug/mL) and detected by chemiluminescence using Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, HRP conjugate (Product # A27036, 0.4 ug/ml, 1:2500 dilution). A 150 kDa band corresponding to Integrin alpha 6 was observed across cell lines tested. Known quantity of protein samples were electrophoresed using Novex® NuPAGE® 10% Bis-Tris gel (Product # NP0302BOX), XCell SureLock™ Electrophoresis System (Product # EI0002), and Novex® Sharp Pre-Stained Protein Standard (Product # LC5800). Resolved proteins were then transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane with Pierce™ Power Blotter System (22834) The membrane was probed with the relevant primary and secondary Antibody following blocking with 5 % skimmed milk. Chemiluminescent detection was performed using Novex® ECL Chemiluminescent Substrate Reagent Kit (Product # WP20005).

This antibody is predicted to react with equine, rabbit and rat based on sequence homology.
ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale, and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
Integrins are cell surface receptors that interact with the extracellular matrix and mediate intracellular signals that affect cellular shape, mobility, and progression through the cell cycle in response to the extracellular matrix. Integrin receptors are composed of alpha and beta subunits, and form structural and functional linkages between the ECM and intracellular cytoskeletal linker proteins. Signaling mediated by Intergrin/ ECM interactions are also integrated with cellular responses to growth factor signaling to regulate cellular proliferation, cytoskeletal reorganization and other responses necessary for cellular survival. Integrin alpha 6 is predominantly expressed by epithelia. It plays a critical structural role in the hemidesmosome.
