Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Predicted molecular weight: 118 kDa.
ICC 1/50 - 1/100.
Flow Cyt Use at an assay dependent concentration.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Plays a role in the cellular breakdown of insulin, IAPP, glucagon, bradykinin, kallidin and other peptides, and thereby plays a role in intercellular peptide signaling. Degrades amyloid formed by APP and IAPP. May play a role in the degradation and clearance of naturally secreted amyloid beta-protein by neurons and microglia.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the peptidase M16 family.
    • Post-translational
      The N-terminus is blocked.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm. Cell surface. Present at the cell surface of neuron cells. The membrane-associated isoform is approximately 5 kDa larger than the known cytosolic isoform.

    • Flow Cytometry analysis of HeLa (human cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labeling Insulin degrading enzyme / IDE with purified ab109538 at 1/150 dilution (10ug/ml) (red). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. A Goat anti-rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488)(1/2000 dilution) was used as the secondary antibody. Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black) was used as the isotype control, cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue) were used as the unlabeled control.

    • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 2: IDE knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 3: K562 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 4: HepG2 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab109538 observed at 118 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

      ab109538 was shown to specifically react with IDE in wild-type HAP1 cells. No band was observed when IDE knockout samples were examined. Wild-type and IDE knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab109538 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were both diluted 1/2000 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 hour at room temperature before imaging.
