Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab124892 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
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 58 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 58 kDa).
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC/IF or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Dioxygenase that repairs alkylated DNA and RNA by oxidative demethylation. Has highest activity towards single-stranded RNA containing 3-methyluracil, followed by single-stranded DNA containing 3-methylthymine. Has low demethylase activity towards single-stranded DNA containing 1-methyladenine or 3-methylcytosine. Has no activity towards 1-methylguanine. Has no detectable activity towards double-stranded DNA. Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron. Contributes to the regulation of the global metabolic rate, energy expenditure and energy homeostasis. Contributes to the regulation of body size and body fat accumulation.
    • Tissue specificity
      Ubiquitously expressed, with relatively high expression in adrenal glands and brain; especially in hypothalamus and pituitary.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in FTO are the cause of growth retardation developmental delay coarse facies and early death (GRDDCFED) [MIM:612938]. The disease consists of a severe children multiple congenital anomaly syndrome with death by the age of 3 years. All affected individuals had postnatal growth retardation, microcephaly, severe psychomotor delay, functional brain deficits, and characteristic facial dysmorphism. In some patients, structural brain malformations, cardiac defects, genital anomalies, and cleft palate were also observed.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the fto family.
    • Domain
      The 3D-structure of the Fe2OG dioxygenase domain is similar to that of the Fe2OG dioxygenase domain found in the bacterial DNA repair dioxygenase alkB and its mammalian orthologs, but sequence similarity is very low. As a consequence, the domain is not detected by protein signature databases.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus.

      ab124892 was shown to specifically react with FTO in wild-type HAP1 cells. No band was observed when FTO knockout samples were examined. Wild-type and FTO knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab124892 and ab8245 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at a 1/1000 dilution and 1/10,000 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 1/10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
