|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|IHC-P||1/50 - 1/200.|
|IHC-Fr||1/50 - 1/200.|
|WB||1/100 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 65 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 65 kDa).|
FunctionDownregulates SLC1A2/EAAT2 promoter activity when expressed ectopically. Activates the nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-kappa-B) transcription factor. Promotes anchorage-independent growth of immortalized melanocytes and astrocytes which is a key component in tumor cell expansion. Promotes lung metastasis and also has an effect on bone and brain metastasis, possibly by enhancing the seeding of tumor cells to the target organ endothelium. Induces chemoresistance.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed with highest levels in muscle-dominating organs such as skeletal muscle, heart, tongue and small intestine and in endocrine glands such as thyroid and adrenal gland. Overexpressed in various cancers including breast, brain, prostate, melanoma and glioblastoma multiforme.
Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum membrane. Nucleus membrane. Cell junction > tight junction. Nucleus > nucleolus. Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. In epithelial cells, recruited to tight junctions (TJ) during the maturation of the TJ complexes. A nucleolar staining may be due to nuclear targeting of an isoform lacking the transmembrane domain (By similarity). TNF-alpha causes translocation from the cytoplasm to the nucleus.

Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 65 kDa
Observed band size: 65 kDa
Additional bands at: 32 kDa, 63 kDa, 67 kDa (possible post-translational modification). We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
Exposure time: 3 minutes
LYRIC/AEG1 contains a number of potential phosphorylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain the higher migrating band at 67 kDa.
ICC/IF image of ab76742 stained Mcf7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde 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 (ab76742, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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.
