Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 118 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 118 kDa).


  • Function

    Plays a central role in tight junction maintenance via the complex formed with ARHGAP17, which acts by regulating the uptake of polarity proteins at tight junctions. Appears to regulate endothelial cell migration and tube formation. May also play a role in the assembly of endothelial cell-cell junctions.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in placenta and skeletal muscle. Found in the endothelial cells of capillaries as well as larger vessels of the placenta.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the angiomotin family.
  • Domain

    The coiled coil domain interacts directly with the BAR domain of ARHGAP17.
    The angiostatin binding domain (871-1005) allows the binding to angiostatin.
  • Post-translational

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

    Cell junction > tight junction. Localized on the cell surface. May act as a transmembrane protein.

  • Anti-Angiomotin antibody (ab85143) at 1 µg/ml + Human placenta tissue lysate - total protein (ab29745) at 10 µg

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 118 kDa
    Observed band size: 118 kDa
    Additional bands at: 250 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 15 minutes

    The banding pattern observed is comparable to other commercially available antibodies to Angiomotin. Abcam welcomes customer feedback.
  • IHC image of Angiomotin staining in Human skeletal muscle formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab85143, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
