  • Function

    Required for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi). Binds to short RNAs such as microRNAs (miRNAs) or short interfering RNAs (siRNAs), and represses the translation of mRNAs which are complementary to them. Lacks endonuclease activity and does not appear to cleave target mRNAs. Also required for transcriptional gene silencing (TGS) of promoter regions which are complementary to bound short antigene RNAs (agRNAs).
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the argonaute family. Ago subfamily.
    Contains 1 PAZ domain.
    Contains 1 Piwi domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > P-body.

  • Anti-Ago1 antibody (ab98056) at 1 µg/ml (in 5% skim milk / PBS buffer) + THP1 cell lysate at 10 µg

    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 97 kDa

    Gel concentration: 6-18%
  • ab98056 staining Ago1 in Mouse brain tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with neutral buffered formalin and blocked with 10% serum for 12 hours at 4°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in TBS, 0.3% Triton X-100 + 10% serum) for 16 hours at 4°C. A biotinylated Goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
