Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 90,130 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 64 kDa). Due to extensive glycosylation of the mature molecule; the 90 kDa species is a minor incompletely processed species.
Flow Cyt 1/30.

ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

IP 1/50.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function
      Associates with IFNAR2 to form the type I interferon receptor. Receptor for interferons alpha and beta. Binding to type I IFNs triggers tyrosine phosphorylation of a number of proteins including JAKs, TYK2, STAT proteins and IFNR alpha- and beta-subunits themselves.
    • Tissue specificity
      IFN receptors are present in all tissues and even on the surface of most IFN-resistant cells. Isoform 1, isoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed in the IFN-alpha sensitive myeloma cell line U266S. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed in the IFN-alpha resistant myeloma cell line U266R. Isoform 1 is not expressed in IFN-alpha resistant myeloma cell line U266R.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the type II cytokine receptor family.
      Contains 3 fibronectin type-III domains.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated on tyrosine residues by TYK2 tyrosine kinase.

    • All lanes : Anti-IFNAR1 antibody [EP899Y] (ab45172) at 1/1000 dilution

      Lane 1 : Wild-type HeLa whole cell lysate
      Lane 2 : IFNAR1 knockout HeLa whole cell lysate

      Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane.

      Predicted band size: 64 kDa

      Lanes 1 - 2: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab45172 observed at 100 kDa. Red - loading control, ab9484, observed at 37 kDa.

      ab45172 was shown to recognize IFNAR1 in wild-type HeLa cells as signal was lost at the expected MW in IFNAR1 knockout cells. Additional cross-reactive bands were observed in the wild-type and knockout cells. Wild-type and IFNAR1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab45172 and ab9484 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1/1000 dilution and 1/20000 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 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

      Predicted band size: 64 kDa
      Observed band size: 130,90 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
