Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab24601 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 23223531
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 80,73 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 80,73 kDa).

This antibody was raised against an immunogen that is predicted to cross react with both isoform 1 (80 kDa) and isoform 2 (73 kDa) of Human DDX17(SwissProt data).

  • All lanes : Anti-DDX17 antibody (ab24601) at 1 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : Wild-type HEK 293 whole cell lysate
    Lane 2 : DDX17 knockout HEK 293 whole cell lysate
    Lane 3 : Hela whole cell lysate

    Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane.

    Predicted band size: 80,73 kDa

    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab24601 observed at 72 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

    ab24601 was shown to recognize DDX17 in wild-type HEK 293 cells as signal was lost at the expected MW in DDX17 knockout cells. Additional cross-reactive bands were observed in the wild-type and knockout cells. Wild-type and DDX17 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab24601 and ab8245 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1 μg/ml and 1/20000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

    Lane 1 : HeLa (Human epithelial carcinoma cell line) Whole Cell Lysate
    Lane 2 : A431 (Human epithelial carcinoma cell line) Whole Cell Lysate
    Lane 3 : Jurkat (Human T cell lymphoblast-like cell line) Whole Cell Lysate

    All lanes : Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 80,73 kDa
    Observed band size: 73,80 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
    Additional bands at: 14 kDa, 70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 1 minute

    This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab24601 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
