The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 97 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa).
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
FunctionRequired for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi). Binds to short RNAs such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and represses the translation of mRNAs which are complementary to them. Lacks endonuclease activity and does not appear to cleave target mRNAs.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the argonaute family. Ago subfamily. Contains 1 PAZ domain. Contains 1 Piwi domain.
Predicted band size : 97 kDa Observed band size : 97 kDa Additional bands at : 60 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

ab3593 staining Argonaute 3 / eIF2C 3 in murine testis tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and an enzymatic antigen retrieval step was performed. Samples were then blocked with 10% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C and then incubated with ab3593 at a 1/50 dilution for 1 hour 30 minutes at 37°C. The secondary used was a biotin conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal used at a 1/200 dilution.
