Anti-Peroxiredoxin 4 antibody images

  • Peroxiredoxin 4 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Hek293 whole cell extract, 5µl of Rabbit polyclonal to Peroxiredoxin 4 sera and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).

    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Hek293 whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.

    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70°C; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab59542.

    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).

    Band: 27kDa; Peroxiredoxin 4, non specific - as present in control (lane 2); 27kDa: We are confident this was due to slight lane contamination and the band seen in the IP lane is our target of interest.

    Goat polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG - H&L (HRP), pre-adsorbed at 1/3000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 31 kDa
    Observed band size : 27 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 74 kDa,98 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 30 seconds
    The band observed at 27 kDa could potentially be a cleaved form of Peroxiredoxin 4 due to the presence of a 39 amino acid signal peptide.
