ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Clone 6L16 is a ZooMAb rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects Histone H2A.X phosphorylated on serine 139.
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to 9 amino acids surrounding phospho-serine 139 of human Histone H2A.X.
Anti-phospho-Histone H2A.X (Ser139), clone 6L16 ZooMAb, is a recombinant Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody that specifically targets phospho Histone H2AX (ser139) and has been tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), Peptide Inhibition Assay, and Western Blotting.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected phospho-Histone H2A.X (Ser139) in human testis tissue sections.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected phospho-Histone H2A.X (Ser139) in HeLa treated with Staurosporin.
Peptide Inhibition Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot was used with Jurkat cell lysates treated with staurosporin for peptide block analysis.
Histone H2AX (UniProt: P16104; also known as H2a/x, Histone H2A.X) is encoded by the H2AFX (also known as H2AX) gene (Gene ID: 3014) in human. Histones are highly conserved basic nuclear proteins that are responsible for the nucleosome structure of chromatin in eukaryotes. They play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling. Two molecules of each of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, and H4) form an octamer, around which DNA is wrapped in repeating units, called nucleosomes, which limits DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries that require DNA as a template. The histone H2A.X is a variant member of the H2A family of histones that is distinguished from other H2A histones by a unique carboxy-terminal sequence. This unique sequence is highly conserved throughout eukaryotic evolution and is rapidly phosphorylated by ATM or ATR at Serine 139 in mammals in response to DNA double-strand breaks. H2A.X phosphorylation is important in the formation of a stable repair complex at the site of DNA damage. Phosphorylation of H2A.X is important in the formation of a stable repair complex at the site of DNA damage. This phosphorylation is a very rapid response to DNA damage, occurring within as little as one minute after exposure to ionizing radiation. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
