Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 37 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).
IP Use at 1-4 µg/mg of lysate.


  • FunctionActs as a mediator of transcriptional repression by nuclear hormone receptors via recruitment of histone deacetylases (By similarity). Functions as an estrogen receptor (ER)-selective coregulator that potentiates the inhibitory activities of antiestrogens and represses the activity of estrogens. Competes with NCOA1 for modulation of ER transcriptional activity. Probably involved in regulating mitochondrial respiration activity and in aging.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the prohibitin family.
  • Developmental stageLevels of expression in fibroblasts decrease heterogeneously during cellular aging.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion inner membrane. Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Also cytoplasmic and nuclear.

  • ICC/IF image of ab71970 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 (ab71970, 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.
