  • General notes

     

    This antibody was raised by a genetic immunization technique. Genetic immunization can be used to generate antibodies by directly delivering antigen-coding DNA into the animal, rather than injecting a protein or peptide (Tang et al. PubMed: 1545867; Chambers and Johnston PubMed 12910245; Barry and Johnston PubMed: 9234514). The animal's cells produce the protein, which stimulates the animal's immune system to produce antibodies against that particular protein. A vector coding for a partial fusion protein was used for genetic immunisation of a mouse and the resulting serum was tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing that partial fusion protein. Genetic immunization offers enormous advantages over the traditional protein-based immunization method. DNA is faster, cheaper and easier to produce and can be produced by standard techniques readily amenable to automation. Furthermore, the antibodies generated by genetic immunization are usually of superior quality with regard to specificity, affinity and recognizing the native protein.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 77 kDa).

This antibody has been tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing the partial recombinant fusion protein used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.

Target

  • FunctionTranscription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3') and activates the promoters of the genes for some small nuclear RNAs (snRNA) and of genes such as those for histone H2B and immunoglobulins. Modulates transcription transactivation by NR3C1, AR and PGR (By similarity). In case of human herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection, POU2F1 forms a multiprotein-DNA complex with the viral transactivator protein VP16 and HCFC1 thereby enabling the transcription of the viral immediate early genes.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Isoform 2 is lymphocyte-specific.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class-2 subfamily.
    Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 1 POU-specific domain.

Anti-Oct-1 antibody images

  • All lanes : Anti-Oct-1 antibody (ab52812) at 1/1000 dilution

    Lane 1 : Negative control lane: ~20µg of a total protein extract from E.coli with ~50ng to 100ng of a fusion protein of an irrelevant antigen.
    Lane 2 : Test lane: ~20µg of a total protein extract from E.coli with ~50ng to 500ng of the antigen (a fusion protein).

    Secondary
    Rabbit anti-mouse IgG + IgM, (H+L) horseradish peroxidase conjugated. at 1/5000 dilution

    Predicted band size : 77 kDa
    Observed band size : 38 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    The western blot contains a test lane of ~20µg of a total protein extract from E.coli with ~50ng to 500ng of the antigen (GST-antigen fusion protein). The negative control lane is the same except it contains ~50ng to 100 ng of a GST fusion protein of an irrelevant antigen. The blot was probed with a final antisera dilution of 1:1000. The secondary antibody (Rabbit anti-mouse IgG + IgM, (H+L) horseradish peroxidase conjugated (Pierce)) is used at 1:5000 dilution. Note, the molecular weight of the band on the western blot does not correspond to the molecular weight of the natural protein because only a fragment of the gene is used and it is fused to a tag.
