Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab201993 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
This product gave a positive signal in MCF7 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) and 100% methanol (5 min).
RelevanceMany cellular proteins, including nuclear pore, oncogene, cytoskeletal, heat shock, viral and transcription regulatory proteins contain single O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) residues attached to serine or threonine residues. It has been observed that O-GlcNAc glycosylated proteins tend to be under phosphorylated relative to unglycosylated proteins and that O-GlcNAc bearing proteins tend to be found in multimeric complexes. This has led to the suggestion that O-GlcNAc glycosylation may obscure phosphorylation sites and acts as a signaling mechanism or mediator of signaling.
Overlay histogram showing MCF7 cells stained with ab201993 (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 (ab201993, 1/500 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 (monoclonal) Alexa Fluor® 488 (ab171463) used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. 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. This antibody gave a positive signal in MCF7 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
ab201993 staining O-Linked N-Acetylglucosamine in MCF7 cells. The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab201993 at 1/200 dilution (shown in green) and ab195889, Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 594), at 1/250 dilution (shown in red). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue).
Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
This product also gave a positive signal under the same testing conditions in MCF7 cells fixed with 100% methanol (5min).
