Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
WB 1/250. Detects a band of approximately 23, 33 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 23 kDa).


  • Function
    Histone chaperone that facilitates histone deposition and histone exchange and removal during nucleosome assembly and disassembly. Cooperates with chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) to promote replication-dependent chromatin assembly and with HIRA to promote replication-independent chromatin assembly. Required for the formation of senescence-associated heterochromatin foci (SAHF) and efficient senescence-associated cell cycle exit.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitously expressed.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ASF1 family.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by TLK1 and TLK2. Highly phosphorylated in S-phase and at lower levels in M-phase.

    IRDye 680 Conjugated Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) at 1/15000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 23 kDa
    Observed band size : 23,33 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 50 kDa (possible non-specific secondary antibody binding).
  • ICC/IF image of ab24171 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were PFA fixed (10 min), permabilised in TBS-T (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab24171, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to quench autofluorescence and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. 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). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).
