The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
WB 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 74 kDa. 1/1000 when using colorimetric substrates and 1/5000 for chemiluminescent substrates. (pre-pro-peptide runs at 78-80 kDa, the mature form at 58 kDa)

Target

  • FunctionMay be implicated in the differentiation of cortical neurons and may play a role in cholesterol homeostasis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in neuro-epithelioma, colon carcinoma, hepatic and pancreatic cell lines, and in Schwann cells.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in PCSK9 are the cause of familial hypercholesterolemia 3 (FH3) [MIM:603776]. FH3 inheritance is autosomal dominant.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase S8 family.
    Contains 1 peptidase S8 domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The soluble zymogen undergoes autocatalytic intramolecular processing in the endoplasmic reticulum, resulting in the cleavage of its propeptide that remains associated with the secreted enzyme.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

Anti-PCSK9 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab52754 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab52754, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
