Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA 1/100 - 1/1000.

  • FunctionUnknown. Cellular response protein to viral infection.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highly expressed in colon, prostate, trachea and stomach. Expressed at lower level in testis, muscle, lymphoid tissues, white blood cells and spleen. Predominantly expressed by cells of the epithelial lineage. Expressed at low level in normal liver. Expression significantly increases in virus (HBV, HCV) infected liver. Expression does not increase in liver disease due to non-viral causes (alcohol-induced liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis). Increased expression in hepatocytes appears to be a general feature of advanced liver disease. In liver tissue from patients with adult giant-cell hepatitis (GCH), it is strongly expressed in hepatocyte-derived syncitial giant cells. Constitutively expressed by biliary epithelial cells but not by hepatocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the GOLM1/CASC4 family.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.
  • Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus > cis-Golgi network membrane. Early Golgi. Cycles via the cell surface and endosomes upon lumenal pH disruption.

Anti-GOLPH2 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab22209 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 4% PFA 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 (ab22209, 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.

  • ab22209 (4µg/ml) staining gGOLPH2n human colon using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong cytoplasmic within the colonic epithelium.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.
