Synthetic peptide conjugated to KLH derived from within residues 300 to the C-terminus of Human MAFA.
(Peptide available as ab28523.)
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab26405 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 36 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).
Human MAFA has a predicted molecular weight of 37 kDa (Swiss-Prot data), however publications have shown the human protein to be detected at 47 kDa according to reference PMID 12011435, http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/full/99/10/6737. Our data shows ab26405 to detect a band at 36 kDa in human brain, kidney and liver which is similar to that seen in other publications (PMID:14680841, PMID:18159220 (expression profile) ). The mouse protein has also been observed at 47 kDa according to reference PMID 12368292.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 0.8 - 4 µg/ml.|
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
ab26405 staining MAFA in Human PANC-1 cell line transfected with synthetic mRNA by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.05% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 30 minutes at 20°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200) for 30 minutes at 37°C. An Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/400) was used as the secondary antibody.
Human MAFA has a predicted molecular weight of 37 kDa (Swiss-Prot data). Some publications suggest that the human protein should be detected at 47 kDa (PMID 12011435). Our data shows that ab26405 detects a band at 36 kDa in human brain, which is similar to that seen in other publications [PMID:14680841, PMID:18159220 (expression profile)].
