DDX6, also known as p54/RCK, is a member of the DEAD (Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp)-box RNA helicase family. DDX6 has been shown to localize to, and is required for the assembly of, processing bodies (P-bodies), which are cytoplasmic foci that consist of proteins involved in mRNA storage, processing, and turnover. DDX6 has ATP hydrolysis and RNA helicase activities, which are involved in secondary structure modulation and the degradation of mRNA. Interacting with key components of miRNA-induced silencing complexes, DDX6 participates in translational repression, as well. DDX6 is overexpressed in some colorectal tumor cells and can act as a proto-oncogene.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 0.1-0.25 µg/mL (1:2000-1:5000 dilution). For immunoprecipitation, the suggested use of this reagent is 2-10 μg per ml. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
At high antibody concentrations, a weak, non-specific band of ~30 kDa may appear in western blots.
