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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/250 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 97 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa).
IHC-P 1/200.


  • 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. Also required for RNA-directed transcription and replication of the human hapatitis delta virus (HDV).
  • 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
  • ab85077 staining Argonaute 4 in Mouse testis tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 10% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in PBS + casein) for 1 hour 30 mins at 37°C. A Biotin-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.

Thank you for your enquiry. To date, neither of our anti-AGO4 antibodies have been tested in IP. Both ab85077 and ab52724 have thusfar only been tested in western blotting. They may be useful for IP but we do not have any data to suggest it. ...
