  • Function
    Molecular chaperone that promotes the maturation, structural maintenance and proper regulation of specific target proteins involved for instance in cell cycle control and signal transduction. Undergoes a functional cycle that is linked to its ATPase activity. This cycle probably induces conformational changes in the client proteins, thereby causing their activation. Interacts dynamically with various co-chaperones that modulate its substrate recognition, ATPase cycle and chaperone function.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the heat shock protein 90 family.
  • Domain
    The TPR repeat-binding motif mediates interaction with TPR repeat-containing proteins.
  • Post-translational
    Ubiquitinated in the presence of STUB1-UBE2D1 complex (in vitro).
    S-nitrosylated; negatively regulates the ATPase activity.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Melanosome. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.

  • Ab53497 staining Human normal placenta. Staining is localized to cytoplasmic compartment.
    Left panel: with primary antibody at 2 ug/ml. Right panel: isotype control.
    Sections were stained using an automated system DAKO Autostainer Plus , at room temperature. Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3-in-1 AR buffers EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT Link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 minutes. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 minutes and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.

The cells were 4% PFA 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 (ab53497, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h.

Than you for your inquiry and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing some trouble with ab53497 and ab79849. Are you running any isotype controls with these experiments? I just want to make sure that the pull down with the HBP21 antibody is genuine. Have you tried to do a regular IP and not a co-IP with ab53497 and ab79849? These are the IP references we know of with the HSP beta antibody, ab53497. Barent R. L. (1998) Mol. Endocrinol. 12: 342-354 11. Lo. M.A. (1998) EMBO J. 17: 6879-6887. What kind of lysis buffer are you using? A key factor in maintaining complex formation throughout the steps required for co-IP is the lysis and wash buffers. Many protein interactions will remain intact after lysis using standard non-denaturing lysis buffers. Buffers with low ionic strength (i.e., <120mM NaCl) that contain non-ionic detergents (NP-40 and Triton X-100) are less likely to disrupt protein-protein interactions; however, testing may be required to determine the best buffer formulation for a specific protein complex of interest. Additionally, lysing cells by sonication or vortexing the lysate or bead-bound immune complexes during the wash steps should be avoided to prevent the disruption of the protein-protein interaction(s) of the target complex. And while centrifugation is a standard method to separate the precipitated complexes from the remaining lysate and during wash steps, the samples should be handled gently to prevent the loss of bound complex proteins. An advanced technique to strengthen protein-protein interactions is by crosslinking the binding partners. Using this approach, all proteins within the active distance of the specific reagent in a cell lysate are covalently crosslinked, and the target protein can then be immunoprecipitated along with the other proteins in the complex without the risk of losing binding partners. Co-IPs can be tricky due to the nature of the interaction of the proteins, nonspecific binding to IP components and antibody contamination that may mask detection. We haven't tested ab53497 and ab79849 by co-IP so it's difficult to know if this may be the issue. Could you try the protocol recommendations or run a regular IP with the antibody? That could show that it is an issue with the protein binding more than the antibodies.
