You can check the tissue specificity below for information on selecting positive and negative control.
|Protein Name||Arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase|
|Molecular Weight||77983 MW|
|Protein Function||Catalyzes the first step in leukotriene biosynthesis, and thereby plays a role in inflammatory processes. .|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the lipoxygenase family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Cytoplasm. Nucleus matrix. Nucleus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Shuttles between cytoplasm and nucleus. Found exclusively in the nucleus, when phosphorylated on Ser-272. Calcium binding promotes translocation from the cytosol and the nuclear matrix to the nuclear envelope and membrane association.|

Predicted bind size: 78KD
Observed bind size: 78KD
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
