Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab70497 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 Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 19339552
ICC 1/50 - 1/250.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB 1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 280 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 214 kDa).
IP Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.


  • Function
    May serve as a docking site in the receptor-mediated import of substrates across the nuclear pore complex.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in thymus, spleen, bone marrow, kidney, brain and testis, but hardly in all other tissues or in whole embryos during development.
  • Involvement in disease
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving NUP214 is found in a subset of acute myeloid leukemia (AML); also known as acute non-lymphocytic leukemia. Translocation t(6;9)(p23;q34) with DEK. It results in the formation of a DEK-CAN fusion gene.
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving NUP214 is found in some cases of acute undifferentiated leukemia (AUL). Translocation t(6;9)(q21;q34.1) with SET.
  • Domain
    Contains FG repeats.
  • Post-translational
    Probably glycosylated as it reacts with wheat germ agglutinin (WGA).
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus > nuclear pore complex. Cytoplasmic filaments.

    Exposure time: 3 minutes
  • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of formaldelyde-fixed HeLa cells labelling NUP214 with ab70497 at 1/100 (2µg/ml). A FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/100) was used as the secondary antibody.
  • Detection of Human NUP214 by Western Blot of Immunprecipitate. ab70497 at 1µg/ml staining NUP214 in HeLa whole cell lysates immunoprecipitated using ab70497 at 3µg/mg lysate (1 mg/IP; 20% of IP loaded/lane). Detection: Chemiluminescence with exposure time of 10 seconds.
