ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/250.


  • RelevanceZyxin binds alpha-actinin and the CRP proteins and is implicated in the regulation and modulation of actin filaments organization, cell adhesion, cell motility, mitosis, and signal transduction. Zyxin may shuttle between focal adhesion plaques and the nucleus. It has been suggested that zyxin is involved in gene transcription by its association with transcription factors in the nucleus.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasmic, cytoskeletal and Nuclear.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab109316 (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 (ab109316, 1/10000 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (0.1μg/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.
