Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 35, 81 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 81 kDa).
IP Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.
IHC-P 1/500 - 1/2000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.


  • Function
    May be involved in the regulation of gene expression by covalent modification of histone proteins. Isoform Long is a corepressor of estrogen receptor (ER). Isoform Short binds to ER and sequesters it in the cytoplasm and enhances non-genomic responses of ER.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. High expression in brain, ovaries, adrenal glands and virgin mammary glands. Higher in tumors than in adjacent normal tissue from the same individual.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 BAH domain.
    Contains 1 ELM2 domain.
    Contains 1 GATA-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 SANT domain.
  • Developmental stage
    Highly expressed in metastatic cells.
  • Domain
    Isoform Short contains a Leu-Arg-Ile-Leu-Leu motif (ER binding motif).
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm and Nucleus.

  • All lanes : Anti-MTA1 antibody (ab71153) at 0.04 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : Whole cell lysate from Hela cells at 50 µg
    Lane 2 : Whole cell lysate from Hela cells at 15 µg
    Lane 3 : Whole cell lysate from Hela cells at 5 µg
    Lane 4 : Whole cell lysate from 293T cells at 50 µg

    Predicted band size: 81 kDa
    Observed band size: 81 kDa
    Additional bands at: 35 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

  • Immunoprecipitation/ Western Blot of MTA1
    Lane 1: ab71153 at 3µg/mg whole cell lysate.
    Lane 2: Control IgG.
    Whole cell lysate from Hela cells at 1mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded.
    Subsequent WB detection was performed using 1 µg/ml ab71153.
    Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 1 second.
  • ICC/IF image of ab71153 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 (ab71153, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.
