Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab109472 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/200.

Can be used with methanol or paraformaldehyde-fixed cells.

IHC-P Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 263 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 263 kDa).


  • Function
    Represses hepatitis B virus (HBV) core promoter activity and transcription of HBV genes and production of HBV virions. Binds to the consensus DNA sequence: 5'-GA[GT]AN[CG][AG]CC-3'. Might protect cells from apoptosis. Might be involved in pre-mRNA splicing.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed, with the higher expression seen in leukocyte and heart.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 DRBM (double-stranded RNA-binding) domain.
    Contains 1 G-patch domain.
  • Domain
    Contains 8 types of repeats which are distributed in 3 regions.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus speckle. Colocalizes with the pre-mRNA splicing factor SFRS2/SC-35.

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/10000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 263 kDa
    Observed band size : 263 kDa
    Additional bands at : 100 kDa,270 kDa (possible post-translational modification),40 kDa,50 kDa,68 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 4 minutesThis blot was produced using a 3-8% Tris Acetate gel under the TA buffer system. The gel was run at 150V for 60 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab109472 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
  • IHC image of SON staining in Human normal duodenum formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab109472, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
