product information

Saccharomyces cerevisiaereplication protein A (RPA),  also known as replication factor A (RFA) is a single-stranded DNA-binding protein that is required for multiple processes in eukaryotic DNA metabolism. Those processes include DNA replication, DNA repair, and recombination.  Homologues to RPA have been identified in all eukaryotic organisms examined. RPA is heterotrimeric protein composed of subunits of approximately 70, 30, and 14 kDa. Members of this family bind nonspecifically to single-stranded DNA and interact with and/or modify the activities of multiple proteins. Alternative names:  Replication protein A 69 kDa DNA-binding subunit, Single-stranded DNA-binding protein, DNA-binding protein BUF2, replication protein A 36 kDa subunit,    DNA-binding protein BUF1 antibody


RPA from Saccharomyces cerevisiae consisting of three subunits RFA1 (70 kDa), RFA2 (30 kDa) and RFA3 (14 kDa); overexpressed in E.coli and purified by chromatography; no affinity tags were added to any of three subunits

Host Rabbit

application example


TCA precipitated protein extracts from a wild type yeast strain (S. cerevisiae) were separated on 10% gel and transferred to a PVDF membrane. Antibody was used in different dilutions: 1: 5000 (1); 1: 10 000 (2); 1: 20 000 (3);

Besides the bands for RFA1 and RFA2 an unspecific band was detected at ~150 kDa.
