Antibody to Detect Mouse LINE-1 ORF-1 Protein


CU investigators have generated a polyclonal antibody to detect mouse ORF1 protein, which is required for retrotransposition of the LINE-1 retrotransposon. The antibody was generated by immunizing rabbits with recombinant mouse ORF1 protein. Testing shows that the antibody is highly specific and capable of detecting 1 ng of protein in a western blot. In addition to use in western blotting, the antibody can be used immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry assays.
