Each vial of cell lysate contains 100ug of total protein (at 1 mg/ml). The 2xSDS Sample Buffer consists of 4% SDS, 125mM Tris-HCl pH6.8, 10% Glycerol, 0.002% Bromophenol blue, 100mM DTT.

Product Specifications

Application Notes

This product is intended for use as a positive control in Western Blot.

Each vial of cell lysate contains 100ug of total protein which should be sufficient for 20-50 reactions. Depending on over-expression level, antibody affinity and detection system, some lysates can go as low as 0.1 ug per load. We recommend starting with 5ug of cell lysate. Add an equal amount of cell lysate and 2X SDS Sample buffer and boil the SDS samples for 10 minutes before loading.


35.7 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Background: ACOT8

ACOT8 is encoded by this gene is a peroxisomal thioesterase that appears to be involved more in the oxidation of fatty acids rather than in their formation. The encoded protein can bind to the human immunodeficiency virus-1 protein Nef, and mediate Nef-induced down-regulation of CD4 in T-cells. Multiple transcript variants encoding several different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq]

Product Specific Notices for ACOT8 Overexpression Lysate

HEK293T cells in 10-cm dishes were transiently transfected with a non-lipid polymer transfection reagent specially designed and manufactured for large volume DNA transfection. Transfected cells were cultured for 48hrs before collection. The cells were lysed in modified RIPA buffer (25mM Tris-HCl pH7.6, 150mM NaCl, 1% NP-40, 1mM EDTA, 1xProteinase inhibitor cocktail mix, 1mM PMSF and 1mM Na3VO4, and then centrifuged to clarify the lysate. Protein concentration was measured by BCA protein assay kit.This product is manufactured by and sold under license from OriGene Technologies and its use is limited solely for research purposes.

This product is for research use only and is not approved for use in humans or in clinical diagnosis. Lysates are guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.
