Batches of this product that have a concentration < 1mg/ml may have BSA added as a stabilising agent. If you would like information about the formulation of a specific lot, please contact our scientific support team who will be happy to help.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 18 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 12 kDa).
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Functions as a transcriptional regulator. Functions in cell cycle regulation through CCNA2.
Involvement in disease
Note=A chromosomal aberration involving HMGA2 is associated with a subclass of benign mesenchymal tumors known as lipomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q27-q28;q13-q15) with LPP is shown in lipomas. HMGA2 is also fused with a number of other genes in lipomas. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving HMGA2 is associated with pulmonary chondroid hamartomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q27-q28;q14-q15) with LPP is detected in pulmonary chondroid hamartomas. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving HMGA2 is associated with parosteal lipomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q28;q14) with LPP is also shown in one parosteal lipoma. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving HMGA2 is found in uterine leiomyoma. Translocation t(12;14)(q15;q23-24) with RAD51L1. Chromosomal rearrangements involving HMGA2 do not seem to be the principle pathobiological mechanism in uterine leiomyoma.
Belongs to the HMGA family. Contains 3 A.T hook DNA-binding domains.
Expressed predominantly during embryogenesis.
Regulated by cell cycle-dependent phosphorylation which alters its DNA binding affinity.
The predicted molecular weight of HMGA2 is 12 kDa (SwissProt), however we expect to observe a banding pattern around 18 kDa. Abcam welcomes customer feedback and would appreciate any comments regarding this product and the data presented above.
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MES buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 35 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 ab109329 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
ICC/IF image of ab109329 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehdye 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 (ab109329, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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. This antibody also gave a positive result in 100% methanol fixed (5 min) Hek293 and HepG2 cells at 1µg/ml.
