Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab72408 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 1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 55, 190 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 152 kDa).
IP Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 19729507
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

Target

  • FunctionIn the process of mRNA degradation, seems to play a role in mRNA decapping. Component of a complex containing DCP2 and DCP1A which functions in decapping of ARE-containing mRNAs. Promotes complex formation between DCP1A and DCP2. Enhances the catalytic activity of DCP2 (in vitro).
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the WD repeat EDC4 family.
    Contains 4 WD repeats.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > P-body. Nucleus.

    Developed using the ECL technique

    Predicted band size : 152 kDa
    Observed band size : 190 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 55 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 30 seconds
  • Immunoprecipitation/ Western Blot of EDC4.

    Lane 2: Control IgG.
    ab72408 at 1µg/ml for WB.
    Whole cell lysate from Hela cells at 1mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded.
    Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 3 seconds.
  • ICC/IF image of ab72408 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 (ab72408, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. 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) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

  • IHC image of ab72408 staining in human normal skin formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab72408, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
