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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 48 kDa.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 3 µg/ml.
Flow Cyt Use 0.1µg for 106 cells. ab170190-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


  • FunctionScaffold protein that may play a role in cell adhesion, cell spreading and in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Plays a role in the regulation of cell proliferation. May act as a tumor suppressor. Inhibits tumor cell growth.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the prickle / espinas / testin family.
    Contains 3 LIM zinc-binding domains.
    Contains 1 PET domain.
  • DomainThe N-terminal and the C-terminal halves of the protein can associate with each other, thereby hindering interactions with ZYX.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell junction > focal adhesion. Detected along actin stress fibers.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab57292 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab57292, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H&L) (ab150113) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
  • Testin antibody (ab57292) used in immunofluorescence at 10ug/ml on HeLa cells.
  • Testin antibody (ab57292) used in immunohistochemistry at 3ug/ml on formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human tonsil tissue.

  • Predicted band size : 48 kDa
    Testin antibody (ab57292) at 1ug/lane + K-562 cell lysate at 25ug/lane.
