Alpha B Crystallin (CryAB) is a member of the small heat shock protein (HSP20) family. Alpha crystallins are composed of two gene products: alpha-A and alpha-B, for acidic and basic, respectively. Alpha-A is preferentially restricted to the lens and alpha-B is expressed widely in many tissues and organs. CryAB can be induced by heat shock, ischemia and oxidation. The protein is known to protect cells from stress damage. It may also play an important role in the Golgi reorganization during cell division. CryAB is also known to be associated with a number of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and has been implicated in breast tumors of patients with shorter survival, suggesting that it may be a useful marker in identifying aggressive breast cancer.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by western blotting. For western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.5 - 1.0 µg/mL. For immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections, a concentration range of 2.5 - 10.0 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
This clone recognizes alpha β crystallin proteins at 21 kD in human, mouse, and rat brain lysates. An extra band at 15 kD is observed in the human brain lysates.
