Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Epitope tags are useful for the labeling and detection of recombinant proteins using western blotting, immunoprecipitation and immunostaining techniques. The eight amino acid DYKDDDDK peptide is an established and multi-functional epitope tag and can be expressed and detected with a recombinant protein as an amino-terminal or carboxy-terminal fusion (1). Abgent's DYKDDDDK antibody binds to the same epitope recognized by Sigma's Anti-FLAG antibodies. (FLAG is a registered trademark of Sigma-Aldrich Co., which is not affiliated with Abgent).
