Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab18554 in the following tested applications.

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 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa). Non-specific proteins were also detected at 70 and 100kDa, detection of which was inhibited by preincubation with the immunizing peptide.
ChIP Use at an assay dependent dilution. PubMed: 20663865


  • Function
    Growth suppressor that facilitates the entry of the cell into cell cycle arrest. Functionally similar to the retinoblastoma protein it binds to and represses the activity of cell-cycle-promoting proteins such as SV40 large T antigen, adenovirus E1A, and the transcription factor E2F. Necdin also interacts with p53 and works in an additive manner to inhibit cell growth. Functions also as transcription factor and binds directly to specific guanosine-rich DNA sequences.
  • Tissue specificity
    Almost ubiquitous. Detected in fetal brain, lung, liver and kidney; in adult heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, spleen, thymus, prostate, testis, ovary, small intestine and colon. Not detected in peripheral blood leukocytes. In brain, restricted to post-mitotic neurons.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 MAGE domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Perikaryon. Nucleus. Neural perikarya, translocates to the nucleus of postmitotic neurons and interacts with the nuclear matrix.
