FunctionComponent of the Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1 complex, a complex required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A 'Lys-119', rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. In the PRC1 complex, it is required to stimulate the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity of RNF2/RING2.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 RING-type zinc finger.
modificationsMonoubiquitinated (By similarity). May be polyubiquitinated; which does not lead to proteasomal degradation.

Lane 3: U2OS cell lysate (40 ug)
Lane 4: Molt-4 cell lysate (40ug)
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab14389 observed at 42 kDa. Red - loading control, ab176560, observed at 52 kDa.
ab14389 was shown to recognize Bmi1 when Bmi1 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and Bmi1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab14389 at a concentration of 1 μg/ml and ab176560 (loading control to alpha tubulin) diluted to 1/10000 were incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216772) and Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216777) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
SK-N-SH cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, permeabilized in 0.55 Triton-X100 and incubated for 1 hour with ab14389 (1/200). The Bmi1 staining is shown in red. The cells were counterstained with DAPI (blue). 100x magnification.
Cells were lysed in RIPA buffer. Samples (25 µg) of total protein were separated by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis gel (PAGE) in a 12% gel and transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane. This was followed by an incubation with mouse anti-BMI1 (ab14389) and a sheep anti-mouse HRP conjugated antibody diluted 1:2000 was used as a secondary antibody. HRP conjugated anti-GAPDH antibody (ab9482) was used as a loading control.
The mCbx7 expressing cells were infected with lentivirus-based shRNA vectors targeting BMI1 or an irrelevant control (C).
Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) colorectal cancer tissues and normal colorectal tissues. Endogenous peroxidase was blocked by incubating the sections in a 0.3% solution of hydrogen peroxide (in PBS) for 20 min. Antigen retrieval was performed by heating the sections for 10 min at 95°C in a citrate buffer. Tissues were incubated with ab14389 overnight (16 hrs). Staining was visualized using the Dako REAL EnVision Detection System, Peroxidase/DAB+, Rabbit/Mouse (Dako). The stained TMA sections were scanned using a 20x magnification on the semi-automated Ariol system (Leica Microsystems, Wetzlar, Germany). Tumor cell areas (tumor tissues) and colon epithelium (in normal tissues) were identified for positive (indicated by yellow dots) and negative (blue dots) nuclei in tumor cores. TMA slides were scanned using a 20x magnification. Shown are positively stained tumor cores (top image) and negative tumor cores (bottom image).
Western blot analysis of RIPA lysates from U2OS cells labelling Bmi-1 with ab14389 at 0.2μg . An IgG (HRP) goat anti-mouse was used as the secondary antibody.

Sections were deparaffinized in xylene, dehydrated through graded alcohols, and placed in 0.1% hydrogen peroxide to quench any endogenous peroxidase activity. A 5 minute, 750 W microwave pretreatment in citrate buffer (pH 6.0) was repeated 4 times and followed by treatment with 10% normal rabbit serum for 30 minutes to block nonspecific antibody binding. The slides were then incubated with ab14389 at a 1/100. Primary antibody incubation was followed by three washes with PBST and incubation with fluorescently-labeled Cy2 (1/250) secondary antibody for 2 hours. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI. Finally, sections were rinsed with PBST, dehydrated through sequential washes in 50%, 70%, 95%, and 100% ethanol and then cleared in xylene. Slides were mounted with DPX mounting media and allowed to dry overnight.
