Description of Target:
Gap junctions were first characterized by electron microscopy as regionally specialized structures on plasma membranes of contacting adherent cells. These structures were shown to consist of cell-to-cell channels. Proteins, called connexins, purified from fractions of enriched gap junctions from different tissues differ. The connexins are designated by their molecular mass. Another system of nomenclature divides gap junction proteins into 2 categories, alpha and beta, according to sequence similarities at the nucleotide and amino acid levels. For example, CX43 (MIM 121014) is designated alpha-1 gap junction protein, whereas CX32 (GJB1; MIM 304040) and CX26 are called beta-1 and beta-2 gap junction proteins, respectively. This nomenclature emphasizes that CX32 and CX26 are more homologous to each other than either of them is to CX43.

 Questionnaire:
 How do Aviva’s reagents play a role in your experimental goals?  Before I receiving Aviva, I even did not know the existence of it. Our lab purchased antibodies from different companies. But after I tried this sample from Aviva, I have to say this antibody is very sensitive.
 How would you rate this antibody on a scale from 1-5 (5=best) nad why? 4
 Would you use this antibody in future experiment? Yes, I will.
 Have you used another antibody which has worked in your application? Yes.
 Do you believe the information about the reagent on Aviva’s website is correct? Yes.
 If the antibody works, do you plan to use it in future experiments or to publish your data? Why or why not?  Yes, for part of my experiment, I will use it to verify my mouse Cx26 from purified insect cell. But for other experiment, especially for cell image, I have to find other good antibody which can specifically recognize human Cx26.
 How did you store the antibody after re-suspension? I stored it in -20 d C fridge.
 Sample Description (please include 1) species type, and 2) cell/tissue type, and 3) how much protein loaded for each lane of your gel): 4ug protein
 How many different experimental trials were conducted using the antibody sample? I only tried western blot for targeting human and mouse Cx26. But it only works for mouse Cx26.
 How was this sample prepared?  10ul of purified mouse Cx26 was mixed with 10ul 2x SDS-Page sample buffer, incubate at room temperature for 1 hour before running the SDS-Page.
 Primary antibody dilution and incubation time:  1:3000, overnight at 4 d C.
 Secondary antibody used and dilution and incubation time: 1:3000, 1 hour at room temperature.
 What controls were used in your experiment (positive/negative)? Negative controls
 Please include your detailed WB Procedure/Protocol here: 1. Run 12.5% SDS-Page gel
2. Transfer protein on the gel to nitrocellulose membrane
3. Block the membrane for 1 hour at room temperature or overnight at 4°C using 5% blocking solution.
4. Incubate membrane with 1:3000 dilutions of primary antibody in 5%  blocking solution overnight at 4°C
5. Wash the membrane in three washes of TBST, 5 minutes each.
6. Incubate the membrane with the 1:3000 dilution of labeled secondary antibody in 5% blocking buffer in TBST at room temperature for 1 hour.
7. Wash the membrane in three washes of TBST, 5 minutes each, then rinse in TBS.
8. For signal development, follow the kit manufacturer’s recommendations.
9. Remove excess reagent and cover the membrane in transparent plastic wrap.
10.Acquire image using darkroom development techniques for chemiluminesence

I used Abcam western blot protocol(http://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=13045)
