Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab25388 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ChIP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 54 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 41 kDa). Abcam recommends using milk (3%) as the blocking agent.|
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.|
|IHC-P||1/100. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
FunctionTranscriptional regulator which functions as a general RNA polymerase II transcription inhibitor. In cooperation with 7SK snRNA sequesters P-TEFb in a large inactive 7SK snRNP complex preventing RNA polymerase II phosphorylation and subsequent transcriptional elongation. May also regulate NF-kappa-B, ESR1, NR3C1 and CIITA-dependent transcriptional activity.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed with higher expression in placenta. HEXIM1 and HEXIM2 are differentially expressed. Expressed in endocrine tissues.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the HEXIM family.
DomainThe coiled-coil domain mediates oligomerization.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. Binds alpha-importin and is mostly nuclear.

Predicted band size: 41 kDa
Observed band size: 54 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
ab25388 recognizes a band at approximately 54 kDa that corresponds in size to that seen for HEXIM1. Although it has a predicted molecular weight of 41 kDa, it has been shown to migrate at a larger size of about 54-60 kDa (see Byers et al., J Biol Chem. 2005 Apr 22;280(16):16360-7 and Schulte et al., J. Biol. Chem., Vol. 280, (26): 24968-24977).
HEXIM1 - ChIP Grade was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Jurkat whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to HEXIM1 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Jurkat whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab25388.
Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
Band: 54kD: HEXIM1 .

ab25388 staining HEXIM1 in human kidney. Paraffin embedded human kidney tissue was incubated with ab25388 (1/100 dilution) for 30 mins at room temperature. Antigen retrieval was performed by heat induction in citrate buffer pH 6.
ab25388 was tested in a tissue microarray (TMA) containing a wide range of normal and cancer tissues as well as a cell microarray consisting of a range of commonly used, well characterised human cell lines.

ICC/IF image of ab25388 stained HeLa cells. 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 ab25388 at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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.
