Target

  • Function

    Acts as a repressor of transcriptional activation. Inhibits the transcriptional coactivator activity of CITED1 on Smad-mediated transcription. Chaperone. Isoform 2 may function as an endogenous inhibitory regulator of HSC70 by competing the co-chaperones.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitous.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the heat shock protein 70 family.
  • Domain

    The N-terminal 1-386 residues constitute the ATPase domain, while residues 387-646 form the peptide-binding domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    ISGylated.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Melanosome. Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs. Translocates rapidly from the cytoplasm to the nuclei, and especially to the nucleoli, upon heat shock. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

Answer

Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire and contact us. I am sorry to hear you have had difficulty obtaining satisfactory results from this antibody.
The details you have kindly provided will enable us to investigate this case for you and this is also helpful in our records for monitoring of quality.
I would like to reassure you that ab51052 is tested and covered by our 6 month guarantee for use in IHC-P and mouse samples. In the event that a product is not functioning in the applications cited on the product data sheet, we will be pleased to provide a credit note or free of charge replacement.
Reviewing this case, I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimise the results from ab51052.
1.) The bright "dirty" spots that can be seen on the image are due to precipitates of the secondary antibody. I recommend to spin down antibodies at 4C and use the supernatant to prepare the antibody solution for staining.
2.) I can also suggest to try a different antigen retrieval method. This is a step that often has to be optimized. Maybe ETDA, pH 9 will deliver a better results. Please see the information I have attached to this email.
3.) Since this protein can be in the nucleus as well as in melanosome, I recommend to add an additional permeabilization step. I can suggest to use 0.1% triton X for 10 min only.
4.) ab51052 is a monoclonal antibody and therefore only binds once per protein. Maybe an amplification is needed to enhance the signal.
I would also appreciate if you can confirm some further details:
I ma not familiar with Yazulla embedding. Is it comparable to paraffin? This antibody has not been tested for frozen sections so far.
I hope this information is helpful, thank you for your cooperation. Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do not hesitate to contact me again with the further requested details.

Question
Answer

Thank you for submitting image and clarifying the protocol. The protocol however does not explain; what dilution of primary and secondary antibody was used? The protocol say the lysates were boiled between 95-1000C I presume it is a typos error. We unfortunately are unsure why the heavy chain is giving doublet. It may be possible due to partial glycosylation or due to possible glycosylation difference in heavy chains. I can recommend repeating the experiment by optimizing the antibody dilutions or lysates amount. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. Heavy chain shows band at 50 kDa. 2 bands observed at 50 kDa does this mean you are seeing a duplet. Could you provide an image of the staining and also more information about the protocol used? I have attached the WB questionnaire. Please inform your customer to fill the questionnaire. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
