PA1-4925 detects RecA in E. coli samples.
PA1-4925 has been successfully used in Western blot, ELISA, and immunoprecipitation procedures. By western blot the antibody detects a ~38 kDa protein (RecA) in E. coli samples.
PA1-4925 immunogen corresponds to recombinant RecA protein.
Store at 4°C short term or at -80°C for long term.
E. coli RecA protein plays critically important roles in homologous recombination, recombination repair and regulation of cellular responses to DNA damage (SOS response). RecA promotes auto-cleavage of LexA repressor by its co-protease activity after DNA damage, and induces many proteins related to DNA repair, including RecA itself .
Since RecA has many functions and interacts with various proteins in the cell, the protein complexes can be detected by immunoprecipitaion with the anti-RecA antibody.
RecA forms foci on nucleoids in the cells after exposure to DNA damaging treatments. The foci is visualized by immuno-staining of the cells using this antibody as the first antibody.
