Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 46 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 44 kDa).


  • Function
    In addition to its role as a glycolytic enzyme, it seems that PGK-1 acts as a polymerase alpha cofactor protein (primer recognition protein).
  • Pathway
    Carbohydrate degradation; glycolysis; pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate: step 2/5.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in PGK1 are the cause of phosphoglycerate kinase 1 deficiency (PGK1D) [MIM:300653]. It is a condition with a highly variable clinical phenotype that includes hemolytic anemia, rhabdomyolysis, myopathy and neurologic involvement. Patients can express one or more of these manifestations.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the phosphoglycerate kinase family.

    Lysates/proteins at 10 µg per lane.

    All lanes : Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 44 kDa
    Observed band size: 46 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 42 kDa, 52 kDa, 75 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 2 minutes
  • ICC/IF image of ab90787 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab90787 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in formaldehyde fixed (4%) (10 min) HeLa cells.
