  • Product overview

    ab154470 is suitable to immunocapture p53 from whole cell lysates. Traditional immunoprecipitation methods usually result in co-elution of the antibody heavy and light chains that may co-migrate with relevant bands, masking important results. The abcam p53 immunocapture kit resolves this issue by immobilizing the p53 capture antibody onto protein G-agarose beads. The kit includes optimized buffers and reagents for sample preparation and p53 binding and recovery, which shorten the protocol and minimize handling and mixing.

  • Notes

    p53 acts as a tumor suppressor in many tumor types; induces growth arrest or apoptosis depending on the physiological circumstances and cell type. It is involved in cell cycle regulation as a trans-activator that acts to negatively regulate cell division by controlling a set of genes required for this process. One of the activated genes is an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases. Apoptosis induction by p53 seems to be mediated either by stimulation of BAX and FAS antigen expression, or by repression of Bcl-2 expression. p53 is implicated in Notch signaling cross-over. p53 prevents CDK7 kinase activity when associated to CAK complex in response to DNA damage, thus stopping cell cycle progression.

  • p53 immunocapture kit (ab154470) is specific to the p53 protein. Control proteins HSP60 and actin are present in the Hek293 and MCF7 lysate inputs, but are not found in p53 immunoprecipiations. 

     

    Hek293 cells were extracted with lauryl maltoside (lanes 2, 9), RIPA buffer (lanes 3, 10) or SDS (lanes 4, 11). MCF7 vehicle-treated cells were extracted with lauryl maltoside (lanes 5, 12) or RIPA buffer (lanes 7, 14). MCF7 cells treated with 1 µM camptothecin were extracted with lauryl maltoside (lanes 6, 13) or RIPA buffer (8, 15). Extracts of whole cells (20 µg, lanes 2-8), and one-fifth of immunoprecipitation samples using the p53 immunocapture beads (1 mg extract per 10 µL beads, lanes 9-15), were analyzed by Western blot using ab46798 anti-Hsp60 and ab46805 anti-muscle actin.
