  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for WB.
  • Target

    • Function

      Component of the spindle-assembly checkpoint that prevents the onset of anaphase until all chromosomes are properly aligned at the metaphase plate. May recruit MAD2L1 to unattached kinetochores. Has a role in the correct positioning of the septum. Required for anchoring MAD2L1 to the nuclear periphery. Binds to the TERT promoter and represses telomerase expression, possibly by interfering with MYC binding.
    • Tissue specificity

      Expressed weakly at G0/G1 and highly at late S and G2/M phase.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in MAD1L1 are involved in the development and/or progression of various types of cancer.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the MAD1 family.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated; by BUB1. Become hyperphosphorylated in late S through M phases or after mitotic spindle damage.
    • Cellular localization

      Nucleus. Chromosome > centromere > kinetochore. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > microtubule organizing center > centrosome. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. From the beginning to the end of mitosis, it is seen to move from a diffusely nuclear distribution to the centrosome, to the spindle midzone and finally to the midbody. Colocalizes with NEK2 at the kinetochore.

    • ab5783 staining MAD1 in a human colon carcinoma cell by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in 1% PBS BSA) for 1 hour at 37°C. A goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/100.

    • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab5783 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab5783, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab150113) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2b [PLPV219] (ab91366, 1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
