Anti-Ninein antibody - Centrosome Marker (ab4447)

Overview

  • Product nameAnti-Ninein antibody - Centrosome Marker
    See all Ninein primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to Ninein - Centrosome Marker
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, ICC/IFmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
    Predicted to work with: Mouse
  • Immunogen

    Fusion protein containing amino acids 32-506 of murine Ninein

  • Positive control
    • This antibody gave a positive signal in the following cell lines: HeLa; MCF7.
  • General notes


    The centrosomal protein ninein has been identified as a microtubule minus end capping and centriole anchoring protein, but its true physiological function remains to be determined. At mitosis, ninein has been observed in association with the mitotic spindle as well as at the centrosomes.

ICC/IF 1/500.

Target

Anti-Ninein antibody - Centrosome Marker images

  • IF using ab4447 to detect Ninein in MCF7 cells (human).

    The left hand panels are DAPI stained nuclei. The right hand panels are the same nuclei stained for Ninein.

    ab4447 was used at  1/1000.

    Ninein shows nuclear and centrosome staining, which is expected from the literature.

  • ICC/IF image of ab4447 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab4447, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Image-iTTM FX Signal Enhancer was used as the primary blocking agent, 5% BSA (in TBS-T) was used for all other blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red).

    ab4447 shows the characteristic nuclear and centrosome staining for Ninein.
