ICFC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl per million cells or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood.  It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 488 has a maximum emission of 519 nm when it is excited at 488 nm.

Hsp70 is a member of the Hsp family of highly conserved proteins that play a role in a number of important functions. Their synthesis is increased upon environmental stress. They function by acting as molecular chaperones, facilitating protein refolding and preventing protein aggregation. It has been reported that extracellular Hsp70 also exhibits immunomodulatory effects on innate and acquired immunity.

Other Names: Heat shock protein 70
Structure: Hsp proteins are the most conserved proteins present in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Human HSp70 contains multiple isoforms. Hsp70s consisit of three structural domains, a 44Kd amino-terminal ATPase domain (NBD), followed by an 18 Kd substrate
Distribution: Ubiquitous, cytoplasmic and nuclear
Function: Molecular chaperrones assisting in the folding of proteins and preventing protein aggregation
