Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    ELISA: 1/1000 - 1/5000.
    WB: 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 22.1 kDa.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

    This antibody using the specified conditions may recognize other prominent intrinsic bands (UBLs or their conjugates). Other intrinsic bands are readily detectable in yeast lysates at lower antibody dilutions.
  • Target

    • Function
      Ubiquitin-like protein required for autophagy. Conjugated to ATG3 and ATG5.
    • Tissue specificity
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the ATG12 family.
    • Domain
      Shares weak sequence similarity with ubiquitin family, but contains an 'ubiquitin superfold' and the C-terminal Gly is required for isopeptide linkage.

    • ab4752 generated by immunization with recombinant yeast APG12 was tested by immunoblot against yeast lysates expressing the APG12-GFP fusion protein and other UBL fusion proteins. All UBLs possess limited homology to Ubiquitin and to each other, therefore it is important to know the degree of reactivity of each antibody against each UBL. Panel A shows total protein staining using ponceau. Panel B shows positions of free GFP or GFP containing recombinant proteins present in each lysate preparation after reaction with a 1:1,000 dilution of Goat polyclonal to GFP (ab6673) followed by reaction with a 1:15,000 dilution of Donkey polyclonal to Goat IgG (HRP) (ab7125). Panel C shows specific reaction with APG12 using a 1:2,000 dilution of ab4752 followed by reaction with a 1:15,000 dilution of Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG (HRP) (ab7090). All primary antibodies were diluted in TTBS buffer supplemented with 5% non-fat milk and incubated with the membranes overnight at 4° C. Yeast lysate proteins were separated by SDS-PAGE using a 15% gel. This data indicates that anti-APG12 is highly specific and does not cross react with other UBLs. A chemiluminescence system was used for signal detection (Roche). Other detection systems will yield similar results. Data contributed by M. Malakhov, www.lifesensors.com, personal communication.

    Sorry but there has been no further information on this and we do not know if it will cross react with human.
