  • All lanes : Anti-MKLP1 antibody (ab156884) at 1 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : HeLa (Human epithelial carcinoma cell line) Nuclear Lysate
    Lane 2 : HeLa (Human epithelial carcinoma cell line) Nuclear Lysate with Immunising peptide at 1 µg/ml

    Lysates/proteins at 25 µg per lane.

    All lanes : Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/50000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 110 kDa
    Observed band size: 95 + 97 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 22 kDa (possible non-specific binding)

    Exposure time: 30 seconds

    This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 2% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab156884 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution ab133406

  • ICC/IF image of ab156884 stained HeLa 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 ab156884 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab150081) IgG (H+L) preadsorbed, 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.
