1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Is unsuitable for IP.
Plays fundamental roles in nuclear assembly, chromatin organization, gene expression and gonad development. May potently compress chromatin structure and be involved in membrane recruitment and chromatin decondensation during nuclear assembly. Contains 2 non-specific dsDNA-binding sites which may promote DNA cross-bridging. Exploited by retroviruses for inhibiting self-destructing autointegration of retroviral DNA, thereby promoting integration of viral DNA into the host chromosome. EMD and BAF are cooperative cofactors of HIV-1 infection. Association of EMD with the viral DNA requires the presence of BAF and viral integrase. The association of viral DNA with chromatin requires the presence of BAF and EMD.
Widely expressed. Expressed in colon, brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, ovary, pancreas, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, small intestine, spleen and testis. Not detected in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.
Belongs to the BAF family.
Has a helix-hairpin-helix (HhH) structural motif conserved among proteins that bind non-specifically to DNA. LEM domain proteins bind centrally on the BAF dimer, whereas DNA binds to the left and right sides.
Partially phosphorylated on serine. Ser-4 phosphorylation may block BAF ability to promote EMD binding to lamins in vitro. Non phosphorylated BAF seems to enhances binding between EMD and LMNA.
Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Chromosome. Significantly enriched at the nuclear inner membrane, diffusely throughout the nucleus during interphase and concentrated at the chromosomes during the M-phase. May be included in HIV-1 virions via its interaction with viral GAG polyprotein.
Immunofluorescent analysis of 4% paraformaldehyde-fixed, 0.1% Triton X-100 permeabilized NIH/3T3 (Mouse embryo fibroblast cells)cells labeling BANF1 with ab129184 at 1/100 dilution, followed by Goat anti-rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/400 dilution (green). Confocal image showing mainly nuclear with cytoplasmic staining on NIH/3T3 cell line. The nuclear counterstain is DAPI (blue).

ab129184 staining BANF1 in MDCK cell pellets in paraffin by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Cell pellets were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with Tween-20 and blocked with 1% serum for 2 hours at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Tris/EDTA pH 9. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in 1% BSA + 1% FBS) for 16 hours. An undiluted HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
Flow cytometry analysis of HeLa (human cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labeling BANF1 (red) with ab129184 at a 1/200 dilution. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 90% methanol. A goat anti-rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at a 1/2000 dilution. Black - Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730). Blue (unlabeled control) - Cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies.
