Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/1000.
WB 1/20000 - 1/100000. Predicted molecular weight: 90 kDa.
IP 1/50.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • Target

    • Function
      Calcium-binding protein that interacts with newly synthesized glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. It may act in assisting protein assembly and/or in the retention within the ER of unassembled protein subunits. It seems to play a major role in the quality control apparatus of the ER by the retention of incorrectly folded proteins.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the calreticulin family.
    • Cellular localization
      Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Melanosome. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

      ab92573 was shown to specifically react with Calnexin when Calnexin knockout samples were used. Wild-type and Calnexin knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab92573 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted at 1/20 000 and 1/10 000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

    • ab92573 staining Calnexin in wild-type HAP1 cells (top panel) and CANX knockout HAP1 cells (bottom panel). The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated with ab92573 at 1/1000 dilution and ab195889 at 1/250 dilution (shown in pseudocolour red) overnight at +4°C, followed by a further incubation at room temperature for 1h with a goat secondary antibody to Rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150081) at 2 μg/ml (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.

      Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).

    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of human lung carcinoma A549 cells labelling Calnexin with ab92573. Cells were fixed with 4% PFA in PBS for 15 minutes washed three times with PBS, and then washed twice with 25 mM glycine–PBS. The cells were treated with cold methanol and washed three times with 0.3% Triton X-100 in PBS for permeabilization. The fixed cells were blocked with 5% BSA in PBS overnight. An Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated anti-rabbit was used as the secondary antibody.
