|Target/Specificity||KLH conjugated synthetic peptide was used as antigen.|
|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||FLAG tag antibody (DYKDDDDK) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
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).
