Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 45 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa).
Involved in muscle differentiation (myogenic factor). Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Activates muscle-specific promoters. Interacts with and is inhibited by the twist protein. This interaction probably involves the basic domains of both proteins.
Contains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
Acetylated by a complex containing EP300 and PCAF. The acetylation is essential to activate target genes. Conversely, its deacetylation by SIRT1 inhibits its function. Ubiquitinated on the N-terminus; which is required for proteasomal degradation.
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 2% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab64159 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution ab133406.
ab64159 detects a band at 45 kDa, while this differs to its predicted molecular weight of 34kDa, the banding pattern observed is consistent with what has been described in the literature PMID:19352326.

ab64159 staining MyoD1 in Mouse primary adult muscle stem cells (satellite cells) by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 45 minutes at 21°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/250 in 5% Goat serum + 2% BSA + 0.2% Triton X-100) for 18 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 568-conjugated Goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
