Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    IP: Use at 1 - 4µg/mg of lysate.
    WB: 1/2500 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 71 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 71 kDa).

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function

      May mediate the intracellular trafficking of ceramide in a non-vesicular manner.
    • Tissue specificity

      Widely expressed.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 1 PH domain.
      Contains 1 START domain.
    • Domain

      The START domain recognizes ceramide and mediates the intermembrane transfer of ceramide.
      The PH domain targets the Golgi apparatus.
      The FFAT motif is required for interaction with VAPA and VAPB.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylation on Ser-132 decreases the affinity toward phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate at Golgi membranes and reduces ceramide transfer activity.
    • Cellular localization

      Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus. Endoplasmic reticulum. Preferentially localized to the Golgi apparatus.

    • ICC/IF image of ab72536 stained DU145. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab72536 at (5 µg/mL) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 Goat anti Rabbit  (96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

    • Detection of Human CERT by Immunoprecipitation from Whole cell lysate from HeLa cells (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded), using ab72536 at 3 µg/mg lysate for IP and at 1 µg/ml for subsequent Western blot detection.
