Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 14 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC/IF,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      Involved in intra-Golgi traffic. Modulates intra-Golgi transport through coupling between NSF activity and SNAREs activation. It first stimulates the ATPase activity of NSF which in turn stimulates the association with GOSR1.
    • Tissue specificity

      Ubiquitous. Expressed at high levels in the brain, heart, prostate, ovary, spleen and skeletal muscle. Expressed at very low levels in lung, thymus and small intestine.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the MAP1 LC3 family.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    • Cellular localization

      Golgi apparatus.

    • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 2: GABARAPL2 / GATE-16 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 3: HeLa cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 4: Human tonsil lysate (20 µg)
      Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab126607 observed at 15 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

      ab126607 was shown to specifically react with GABARAPL2 / GATE-16 when GABARAPL2 / GATE-16 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and GABARAPL2 / GATE-16 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab126607 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1/1000 and 1/10 000 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 1/10 000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
