Recombinant full length protein (Dog).
Rab proteins are a family of Ras-like GTPases involved in intracellular compartment protein transport. Different members of the 40+ member rab family are responsible for docking and fusion of transport vesicles between different compartments within the cell. Rab 9 is required for trafficking mannose 6-phosphate receptor between the late endosome to trans-Golgi network (TGN). By facilitating receptor transport, rab 9 enables cells to efficiently recycle important cellular trafficking components. It is functionally necessary for rab 9, like other rab family members, to be prenylated by two 20-carbon geranylgeranyl groups at the C-terminus. Most prenylated rab 9 is membrane bound, however, 10-20% of the cellular pool of rab 9 is bound to GDP dissociation inhibitor-alpha (GDI-alpha) in the cytosol. GDI recycles prenylated, GDP bound rab 9 from their fusion targets back to their membranes of origin.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab2810 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 22 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 22 kDa).|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
ab2810 staining Rab9 in Mouse adult testes tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% BSA for 60 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in 1% BSA) for 15 hours at 4°C. A TRITC-conjugated Donkey anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
