The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 37, 97 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37, 97 kDa).

ab94772 contains 2 antibodies, generated by raising against an AGO4 immunogen and spiking with anti-GAPDH loading control.

  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ChIP,Flow Cyt,ICC/IF or IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function

      Required for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi). Binds to short RNAs such as microRNAs (miRNAs) 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 RNA-directed transcription and replication of the human hapatitis delta virus (HDV).
    • Sequence similarities

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

      Developed using the ECL technique.

      Performed under reducing conditions.

      Predicted band size: 37, 97 kDa
      Observed band size: 37,97 kDa
      why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
      Additional bands at: 52 kDa, 60 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

      Exposure time: 1 minute

      The 97 and 37 kDa bands correlate to AGO4 and GAPDH, respectively.
