Product Details

Our Pan-Ras Activation Assay uses visible agarose beads to selectively precipitate the active form of Ras protein. The precipitated small GTPase is then detected by Western blot using a target-specific antibody included in the kit. The kit detects the H-Ras, K-Ras, and N-Ras isoforms.
