Target

  • Relevance
    Control of cell proliferation by Polycomb group proteins (PcG) is an important facet of cellular homeostasis and its disruption can promote tumorigenesis. CBX7 is a novel PcG protein which is found to control the growth of normal cells. CBX7 is a gene that encodes a Polycomb protein, as shown by sequence homology, its interaction with Ring1 and its localization to nuclear Polycomb bodies. CBX7 extends the lifespan of a wide range of normal human cells and immortalizes mouse fibroblasts by downregulating expression of the Ink4a/Arf locus. CBX7 does not inter-function or colocalize with Bmi1, and both can exert their actions independently of each other as shown by reverse genetics. CBX7 was highly expressed in three different prostate cancer cell lines and present at elevated levels in normal prostate. (Gil et al., 2004).

  • ab21873 (1/1000) staining cbx7 in HeLa cells (green). Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde, permeabilised with 0.5% Triton X-100/PBS and counterstained with DAPI in order to highlight the nucleus (red). For further experimental details please refer to Abreview.

  • IHC image of cbx7 staining in Human normal prostate 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 ab21873, 1µg/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.

Answer

The immunogen is derived from the human CBX7 at the following UniProt entry URL:

http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/O95931 .

Alignment of the immunogen with the sequence provided gave poor results.
Unfortunately, alignments of the immunogens of three of four of our other antibodies against this protein were worse. I am waiting for the result for the fourth, ab123492, which I will send when I receive it.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. I am sorry to hear of the trouble you are having with lot 937205 in ChIP. I looked in our records and there was one other complaint of a similar nature regarding ChIP with this lot of ab21873. We do have a new lot in stock now (lot GR21097-1) and I am happy to offer a replacement for the faulty vial of ab21873.

Please pass along the PO number or Abcam order reference number associated with the purchase of ab21873, lot 937205 so I can process the replacement.
