|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||31323 Da|
|Other Names||Borealin, Cell division cycle-associated protein 8, Dasra-B, hDasra-B, Pluripotent embryonic stem cell-related gene 3 protein, CDCA8, PESCRG3|
|Target/Specificity||This CDCA8 monoclonal antibody is generated from mouse immunized with CDCA8 recombinant protein.|
|Format||Purified monoclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, eluted with high and low pH buffers and neutralized immediately, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CDCA8 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC), a complex that acts as a key regulator of mitosis. The CPC complex has essential functions at the centromere in ensuring correct chromosome alignment and segregation and is required for chromatin-induced microtubule stabilization and spindle assembly. Major effector of the TTK kinase in the control of attachment- error-correction and chromosome alignment.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus, nucleolus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Chromosome, centromere. Note=Localizes on chromosome arms and inner centromeres from prophase through metaphase and then transferring to the spindle midzone and midbody from anaphase through cytokinesis. Colocalizes with SENP3 in the nucleolus in interphase cells.|
