|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AAH09798, 14602573|
|Calculated MW||12497 Da|
|Application Notes||DAD1 antibody can be used for detection of DAD1 by Western blot at 0.5 to 2 µg/mL. Despite its predicted molecular weight, DAD1 migrates at ~22 kDa in SDS-PAGE. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 10 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||DAD1 Antibody: OST2, Dolichyl-diphosphooligosaccharide--protein glycosyltransferase subunit DAD1, Defender against cell death 1, Oligosaccharyl transferase subunit DAD1, defender against cell death 1|
|Reconstitution & Storage||DAD1 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||DAD1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential subunit of the N-oligosaccharyl transferase (OST) complex which catalyzes the transfer of a high mannose oligosaccharide from a lipid-linked oligosaccharide donor to an asparagine residue within an Asn-X-Ser/Thr consensus motif in nascent polypeptide chains. N-glycosylation occurs cotranslationally and the complex associates with the Sec61 complex at the channel-forming translocon complex that mediates protein translocation across the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Loss of the DAD1 protein triggers apoptosis (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

DAD1 Antibody: Defender of cell death 1 (DAD1) was initially discovered in BHK21 cells as a negative regulator of programmed cell death, a process important for normal organism development and tissue homeostasis. DAD1 was later shown to be a subunit of the mammalian oligosaccharyltransferase complex and is required for its function and structural integrity. Mice lacking DAD1 express abnormal N-linked glycoproteins and undergo increased apoptotic-associated embryonic death. Furthermore, overexpression of DAD1 mRNA is seen in some human hepatocellular carcinomas, indicating it may also play a role in carcinogenesis. It should be noted that DAD1 is not related to the inhibitor of apoptosis proteins (IAP) family and does not contain any baculoviral IAP repeat (BIR) domains.
