  • General notes

    Well-characterized antibodies to efficiently detect and purify LRRK2 protein are a critical need in the Parkinson's Disease (PD) research community. To help accelerate LRRK2 research, The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), working with Abcam, has generated unique and high quality LRRK2 rabbit monoclonal antibodies to be widely available for PD research community.
    LRRK2 (Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2, dardarin) is a protein kinase belonging to the ROCO family, which is defined by the presence of a ROC (Ras/GTPase of complex proteins) domain and COR (C-terminal of Roc) region. LRRK2 exhibits kinase activity whereby it can undergo autophosphorylation and can phosphorylate generic substrates. In addition, the GTPase domain of LRRK2 can mediate GDP (guanosine-5′-diphosphate)/GTP (guanosine-5′-triphosphate) binding as well as GTP hydrolysis.

    LRRK2 is mutated in a significant number of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. Mutations in this gene account for 4% of PD, and are observed in 1% of sporadic PD patients. Clinical symptoms of patients carrying PD-associated mutations of LRRK2 are indistinguishable from typical sporadic PD. The spectra of neuropathological features of PARK8 (type 8), the type corresponding to LRRK2, is broad and appears to encompass those associated with other familial PD cases such as PARK1 (alpha-synuclein) and PARK2 (Parkin). Patients with this gene mutation have typical relatively late onset Parkinsonism with features comparable with idiopathic PD; symptoms include asymmetric rest tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity, and a good response to 3,4-dihyroxy-l-phenylalanine (l-DOPA). The pathology of cases with LRRK2 mutations is pleomorphic.

Target

  • Function

    Positively regulates autophagy through a calcium-dependent activation of the CaMKK/AMPK signaling pathway. The process involves activation of nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) receptors, increase in lysosomal pH, and calcium release from lysosomes. Together with RAB29, plays a role in the retrograde trafficking pathway for recycling proteins, such as mannose 6 phosphate receptor (M6PR), between lysosomes and the Golgi apparatus in a retromer-dependent manner. Regulates neuronal process morphology in the intact central nervous system (CNS). Plays a role in synaptic vesicle trafficking. Phosphorylates PRDX3. Has GTPase activity. May play a role in the phosphorylation of proteins central to Parkinson disease.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in the brain. Expressed in pyramidal neurons in all cortical laminae of the visual cortex, in neurons of the substantia nigra pars compacta and caudate putamen (at protein level). Expressed throughout the adult brain, but at a lower level than in heart and liver. Also expressed in placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. In the brain, expressed in the cerebellum, cerebral cortex, medulla, spinal cord occipital pole, frontal lobe, temporal lobe and putamen. Expression is particularly high in brain dopaminoceptive areas.

  • Cellular localization

    Membrane. Cytoplasm. Perikaryon. Mitochondrion. Golgi apparatus. Cell projection, axon. Cell projection, dendrite. Endoplasmic reticulum.

  • Lane 1: Wild type A549 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: Wild type MEF whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 3: LRRK2 knockout A549 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: LRRK2 knockout MEF whole cell lysate (20 µg)

    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab133474 observed at 286 kDa. Red - loading control, ab18058, observed at 130 kDa.

    ab133474 was shown to recognize LRRK2 in wild type A549 and MEF cells along with additional cross reative bands. Whilst signal was not seen in LRRK2 knockout cells. Wild-type and LRRK2 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab133474 and ab18058 (Mouse anti Vinculin loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 10000 dilution and 1/10000 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 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

    Wild-type and LRRK2 knockout MEF and A549 cells were provide as a generous gift from Professor Dario Alessi, MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitination Unit (University of Dundee).

  • Immunoprecipitation to verify the interaction of LRRK2 and ArfGAP1 in vivo. LRRK2 interacts with ArfGAP1 in brain extracts derived from wild-type mice following immunoprecipitation with ab133474, a LRRK2-specific monoclonal antibody (MJFF-2/c41-2), whereas ArfGAP1 is not immunoprecipitated in extracts derived from LRRK2 knockout mice

    Protein extracts were prepared from the cerebral cortex of adult wild-type and LRRK2 knockout mice (with targeted deletion of exon 41 of the LRRK2 gene) by homogenization in TNE buffer (10 mM Tris-HCL pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 5 mM EDTA, 0.5% NP-40, 1× phosphatase inhibitor cocktail 1 and 2, 1× Complete Mini protease inhibitor cocktail). Protein concentration was determined by BCA assay. Brain extracts (10 mg protein) were combined with 50 µl Protein G-Dynabeads pre-incubated with rabbit anti-LRRK2 (5 µg; MJFF2/c41-2; Abcam, Inc.), rabbit anti-ArfGAP1 (3 µg) or rabbit IgG (3 µg) antibodies followed by overnight incubation at 4°C. Dynabead complexes were sequentially washed twice with TNE buffer and twice with TBS buffer (10 mM Tris-HCL pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl). Immunoprecipitates were eluted by heating at 70°C for 10 min, resolved by SDS-PAGE and subjected to Western blot analysis.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Merci de votre patience.


Après vérification, mes collègues m'ont confirmé que les fiches techniques Epitomics sont exactes:

ab133474, ab133475 et ab133476 sont des anticorps non purifiés (supernageants de culture). Les 3 sont sans BSA. Les concentrations de ces 3 références sont connues mais dépendent du lot. Indiquez-moi les numéros des lots que vous avez reçus et je pourrai vous communiquer la concentration de chaque produit.
Les erreurs sur les fiches techniques Abcam de ces 3 produits vont être corrigées dans les plus brefs délais.

Le ab133450 contient bien de la BSA. Pas d'erreur sur les fiches techniques Epitomics ou Abcam pour ce produit. Le point d'interrogation après le 4ºC provient d'un problème informatique lors de la sauvegarde de la fiche technique en pdf.




J'espère que ces informations vous seront utiles. N'hésitez pas à nous contacter de nouveau si vous avez d'autres questions.
