Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 42 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa).
Flow Cyt Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 21628356ab171870-Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 23077099
IHC-FoFr 1/100. See Abreview.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IP Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • Function
    Functions as a renin and prorenin cellular receptor. May mediate renin-dependent cellular responses by activating ERK1 and ERK2. By increasing the catalytic efficiency of renin in AGT/angiotensinogen conversion to angiotensin I, it may also play a role in the renin-angiotensin system (RAS).
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain, heart, placenta, liver, kidney and pancreas. Barely detectable in lung and skeletal muscles. In the kidney cortex it is restricted to the mesangium of glomeruli. In the coronary and kidney artery it is expressed in the subendothelium, associated to smooth muscles where it colocalizes with REN. Expressed in vascular structures and by syncytiotrophoblast cells in the mature fetal placenta.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ATP6AP2 are a cause of mental retardation X-linked with epilepsy (MRXE) [MIM:300423]. MRXE is a syndromic mental retardation. Patients manifest mild to moderate mental retardation associated with epilepsy, delays in motor milestones and speech acquisition in infancy.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 39 kDa
    Observed band size : 42 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • ATP6IP2 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Rat Kidney tissue lysate, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to ATP6IP2 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Rat Kidney tissue lysate lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab40790.
    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
    Band: 42kDa; ATP6IP2
  • ab40790 staining ATP6IP2 in rat kidney tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (PFA perfusion fixed frozen sections). Tissue from 4% PFA perfused animals underwent overnight fixation in 4% paraformaldehyde, cryoprotected in 30% sucrose and cut using cryostat.The primary antibody was diluted, 1/100 (PBS + 0.3% Triton X100) and incubated with sample for 18 hours at 20°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG was used at 1/1000 dilution, as secondary.

Product Wall

The immunogen for ab40790 is C-terminal, thus it should be able to detect both the soluble and full length form of ATP6IP2. However, the 2 forms only have a difference of 1.5 kDa in MW, which is very hard to distinguish via WB. If a low primary an...
