The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 11 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 9 kDa).


  • Function
    DNA-binding component of the FA core complex involved in DNA damage repair and genome maintenance. Recruited to forks stalled by DNA interstrand cross-links, and required for cellular resistance to such lesions. Component of the heterotetrameric CENP-T-W-S-X complex that binds and supercoils DNA, and plays an important role in kinetochore assembly. Component of the APITD1/CENPS complex that is essential for the stable assembly of the outer kinetochore. Plays an important role in mitotic progression and chromosome segregation.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the CENPX family.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Chromosome > centromere. Chromosome > centromere > kinetochore. Constitutively localizes to centromeres throughout the cell cycle, and to kinetochores during mitosis.

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 9 kDa
    Observed band size: 11 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 160 kDa, 46 kDa, 51 kDa, 58 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 2 minutes

    ab104236 detects a band at 11 kDa. While this differs to its predicted molecular weight of 9 kDa, the expression profile observed is consistent with what has been described in the literature PMID:20347429. This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MES buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 35 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab104236 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
