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

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for WB.
  • Target

    • FunctionPlays a role in RNA-mediated gene silencing by both micro-RNAs (miRNAs) and short interfering RNAs (siRNAs). Required for miRNA-dependent repression of translation and for siRNA-dependent endonucleolytic cleavage of complementary mRNAs by argonaute family proteins.
    • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the GW182 family.
      Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > P-body. Mammalian P-bodies are also known as GW bodies.

    Anti-GW182 antibody images

    • IHC image of ab84403 staining in Breast Cancer 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 ab84403, 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.
