  • Function

    Required for cytokinesis. Essential for the structural integrity of the cleavage furrow and for completion of cleavage furrow ingression.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed. Present at highest levels in the brain, at high levels in the placenta and testis, at intermediate levels in the intestine, ovary, skeletal muscle and thymus and at lower levels in heart, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, prostate and spleen. Overexpressed in many tumor types including breast, colorectal, endometrial, hepatic, kidney, lung, ovarian and pancreatic tumors.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 PH domain.
  • Developmental stage

    Expressed in fetal brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, skeletal muscle, spleen and thymus. In dividing cells expression increases during S and G2 phases, peaks at mitosis and subsequently drops as cells enter G1 phase.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated during mitosis.
    Ubiquitinated, and this requires FZR1/CDH1.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Mainly found in the nucleus during interphase. Colocalizes with cortical F-actin upon nuclear envelope breakdown in mitosis and subsequently concentrates in the area of the prospective contractile ring in anaphase. This pattern persists until telophase, when the protein becomes concentrated in the midbody.

Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with methanol and blocked with 4% BSA for 2 hours at 4°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/25 in PBS + 1% BSA) for 2 hour at 25°C. An  Alexa Fluor®488-conjugated Donkey anti-goat  polyclonal(1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.

Expiration date: 07/05/13
Value: € 380
I am very pleased to hear you would like to accept our offer and test ab5910 in ICC on mouse samples. Because ICC is an untested application and mouse is also an untested species we recommend it would be beneficial to test human cells in ICC as well. This will help determining if the application or the species is unsuitable in case the experiment does not give satisfactory results.
This code will give you € 380 off your next order before the expiration date. To redeem this offer, please submit an Abreview for ICC and mouse (human) samples and include this code in the “Additional Comments” section so we know the Abreview is for this promotion. Please remember that submission of the Abreview is sufficient for the discount code to become active.
For more information on how to submit an Abreview, please visit the site: www.abcam.com/Abreviews.
Remember, we publish both positive and negative Abreviews on our datasheets so please submit the results of your tests. The code will be active once the Abreview has been submitted and can be redeemed in one of the following ways: 1) Call to place your order and mention the code to our customer service department; 2) Include the code in your fax order; 3) Place your order on the web and enter the promotional code.

Dear Professor Hall, Thank you for clarifying that I cannot use the published images without the correct approval! It would be really useful if you would be able to provide some images that we are able to show on our website. Other customers often find it very encouraging to have data from independent sources (i.e other researchers)showing the activity of the antibody. I look forward to hearing from you

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab5910 is a "Fast Track antibody:" Fast-Track antibodies are immunogen affinity purified and are shown by ELISA to have high titre values against their immunogen. We are currently testing them for use in Western blotting. Ab5910 has not yet been tested in IHC; a customer has reported some good results in WB and IF (see equiries tab on the online datasheet) but this antibody has not yet been fully characterized. For more information about the Fast Track terms of use, please see the online datasheet. If you have any more questions, please do contact us again.

Thank you for your enquiry and your patience. We are very pleased to hear that you have successfully used this product. However, we regret to inform you that we do not ship our products on dry ice especially not within Cambridge area. Did you actually aliquot product and store the vials in the freezer? Did you use a separate aliquot for the next experiment or the same vial? As our datasheet advices - it is very important to avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
