Immunofluorescent analysis of CREB in serum-starved HeLa cells treated with insulin (100ng/mL, 15 min) using a CREB recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody (Product # 701120) followed by detection using an Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) (Image A). Nuclei were stained using DAPI (Image B) and actin stained with Alexa Fluor 594 phalloidin (red) (image C). Image D is a composite image showing nuclear localization of CREB.

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.
CREB (cAMP responsive element binding protein) encodes for a 43 kDa protein transcription factor and belongs to leucine zipper family. CREB binds to the cyclic-AMP response element (CRE, a sequence present in many viral and cellular promoters) as a homodimer. Phosphorylated form of CREB act as an inducer of transcription for the genes, upon hormone dependent stimulation of cyclic-AMP pathway. CREB is known to play important role in circadian rythm generation and memory formation; aberration in CREB-mediated gene expression has been linked with Alzheimer disease. In humans, the gene is located on the q arm of chromosome 2.
