The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 62 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 58 kDa).
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
FunctionRegulates, cooperatively with NONO and SFPQ, androgen receptor-mediated gene transcription activity in Sertoli cell line (By similarity). Binds to poly(A), poly(G) and poly(U) RNA homopolymers.
Tissue specificityExpressed in pancreas, kidney, skeletal muscle, liver, lung, placenta, brain and heart.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the PSPC family. Contains 2 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domains.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Cellular localizationNucleus > nucleolus. Nucleus matrix. Cytoplasm. In punctate subnuclear structures often located adjacent to splicing speckles, called paraspeckles. Colocalizes with NONO and SFPQ in paraspeckles and perinucleolar caps in a RNA-dependent manner. May cycles between paraspeckles and nucleolus. In telophase, when daughter nuclei form, localizes to perinucleolar caps.
PSPC1 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Hek293 whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to 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 ab104238.
ICC/IF image of ab104238 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 100% methnaol 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 (ab104238, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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 100% methanol fixed (5 min) MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
