The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 49 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa).
Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
RelevanceTetratricopeptide repeat protein 5 (TTC5) is a member of a diverse group of functionally distinct proteins that are characterized by containing one or more tetratricopeptide repeats. Each motif consists of two anti-parallel a-helices such that tandem arrays of TPR motifs generate a right-handed helical structure with an amphipathic channel that may serve to accommodate the complementary region of a target protein. While the exact function of TTC5 remains unclear, it is thought that the TPR motifs serve to mediate protein-protein interactions such as those seen with protein chaperones HSP70 and HSP90 and some proteins involved in cell stress response signaling pathways such as protein phosphatase 5, suggesting that TTC5 may also function via protein-protein interactions mediated by its TPR motifs.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. Note: Phosphorylation at Ser-203 results in nuclear localization, while unphosphorylated protein localizes to the cytoplasm
ICC/IF image of ab36855 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol 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 (ab36855, 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.
