  • Target

    • FunctionMay be involved in regulating membrane traffic to and from trans-Golgi network.
    • Tissue specificityIsoform TGN46 is widely expressed. Isoform TGN51 is more abundant in fetal lung and kidney. Isoform TGN48 is barely expressed in embryonic kidney and promyelocytic cells.
    • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Primarily in trans-Golgi network. Cycles between the trans-Golgi network and the cell surface returning via endosomes.

    • Human A549 cells were fixed and permeabilized with methanol followed by acetone fixation. Fixed cells were stained with 2.5 µg/ml ab50595. The antibody was developed with Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG, FITC conjugate.
    • ab50595 staining human osteosarcoma (143b) cells by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.1% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 37°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 37°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 594 conjugated donkey polyclonal to rabbit diluted 1/500.
    • ab50595 staining TGN46 in human HeLa cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde in PBS for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X100 and blocked with 2% BSA for 30 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in 2% BSA + 0.1% Triton X100) for 2 hours at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG (dilution 1/1500) was used as secondary antibody.
