Synthetic peptide within Human eIF4EBP1 aa 1-100 (N terminal). The exact sequence is proprietary.
Binding of eIF4EBP1 to eIF4E is reversible and is dependent on the phosphorylation status of eIF4EBP1. Non phosphorylated eIF4EBP1 will bind strongly to eIF4E while, the phosphorylated form will not. Akt, TOR, MAP kinase, S6 kinase, and Cdc2 are known kinases capable of inactivating eIF4EBP1 binding to eIF4E by phosphorylating either threonines 35, 45, 69 or serine 64. Although, not all phosphorylation events equally block the eIF4EBP1-eIF4E interaction.

This product is a recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab32024 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/5000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 17 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 13 kDa).|
|IHC-P||1/100 - 1/250.|
Overlay histogram showing HAP1 wildtype (green line) and HAP1-EIF4EBP1 knockout cells (red line) stained with ab32024. The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab32024, 0.1µg/ml) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) presorbed (ab150081) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C.
A rabbit IgG isotype control antibody (ab172730) was used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody (HAP1 wildtype - black line, HAP1-EIF4EBP1 knockout - grey line). Unlabelled sample was also used as a control (this line is not shown for the purpose of simplicity).
Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 50 mW Blue laser (488nm) and 530/30 bandpass filter.
This antibody can also be used in HAP1 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) , permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min under the same conditions.
Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa (Human epithelial cell line from cervix adenocarcinoma) labeling eIF4EBP1 with Purified ab32024 at 1/500 dilution (5 µg/ml). Cells were fixed with 4% PFA and permeabilized with 0.1% tritonX-100. ab150077 Goat anti rabbit IgG(Alexa Fluor® 488) at 1/1000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI. PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control.
Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 2: elF4EBP1 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 3: HEK293 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 4: K562 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab32024 observed at 20 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
ab32024 was shown to specifically react with elF4EBP1 when elF4EBP1 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and elF4EBP1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab32024 and ab8245 (loading control to GADPH) were diluted 1/5000 and 1/2000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
