ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in hydatidiform moles, but barely expressed in dermoid cysts. Biallelic expression is detected in blood lymphocytes. Seems to imprinted in an isoform-specific manner rather than in a tissue-specific manner in lymphocytes. Isoform 1 is expressed only from the paternal allele. Isoform 2 is expressed from both the paternal allele and the maternal allele.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily.
  • Developmental stage
    Monoallelic expression of paternally derived allele was observed in all fetal tissues examined, including brain, skeletal muscle, kidney, adrenal, tongue, heart, skin and placenta. In 75-day fetus, expressed in the amnion, brain, heart, lung, stomach, gut, adrenal, kidney, muscle and liver.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

  • ICC/IF image of ab95453 stained A498 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 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 ab95453 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 donkey anti-goat (ab150133) IgG used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

  • Anti-MEST antibody (ab95453) at 0.2 µg/ml (for 1 hour) + Mouse testis lysate (in RIPA buffer) at 35 µg

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Predicted band size: 39 kDa
