Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab113254 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 74 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 76 kDa).


  • FunctionParticipates in innate immune defense against viruses. Upon interaction with intracellular dsRNA produced during viral replication, triggers a transduction cascade which results in the induction and expression of antiviral cytokines such as IFN-beta and RANTES (CCL5). The RNA helicase domain may recognize and structurally modify viral RNA to facilitate detection by DDX58/RIG-I or by IFIH1/MDA5 whose affinity for dsRNA is lower.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the helicase family.
    Contains 1 helicase ATP-binding domain.
    Contains 1 helicase C-terminal domain.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 76 kDa
    Observed band size : 74 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 26 kDa,36 kDa,48 kDa,55 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 20 seconds
  • ab113254 stained MEF1 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab113254 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
