Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab220796 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 at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 32 kDa.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC/IF.
  • Target

    • Function

      Required for oligodendrocyte and motor neuron specification in the spinal cord, as well as for the development of somatic motor neurons in the hindbrain. Cooperates with OLIG1 to establish the pMN domain of the embryonic neural tube. Antagonist of V2 interneuron and of NKX2-2-induced V3 interneuron development.
    • Tissue specificity

      Expressed in the brain, in oligodendrocytes. Strongly expressed in oligodendrogliomas, while expression is weak to moderate in astrocytomas. Expression in glioblastomas highly variable.
    • Involvement in disease

      Note=A chromosomal aberration involving OLIG2 may be a cause of a form of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Translocation t(14;21)(q11.2;q22) with TCRA.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
    • Domain

      The bHLH is essential for interaction with NKX2-2.
    • Cellular localization

      Nucleus. Cytoplasm. The NLS contained in the bHLH domain could be masked in the native form and translocation to the nucleus could be mediated by interaction either with class E bHLH partner protein or with NKX2-2.

    Images

    • Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) image of human glioblastoma brain cancer tissue stained with Anti-Olig2 antibody [EPR2673]. ab220796 (carrier-free antibody, purified) was metal-conjugated using a Maxpar® Antibody Labeling Kit from Fluidigm. Immunostaining was performed according to Fluidigm’s protocols. Briefly, slides were subject to deparaffinization and heat-induced epitope retrieval, followed by overnight incubation at 4°C with an antibody cocktail containing metal-tagged antibodies in blocking buffer. Slides were subsequently washed with 0.2% Triton-X and 1x PBS, counterstained with Cell-ID™ Intercalator-Ir diluted at 1/400 in 1x PBS for 30 min at room temperature, rinsed for 5 min with distilled H2O, and air-dried prior to IMC™ acquisition. IMC™ acquisition was performed using the Fluidigm Hyperion™ Imaging System.

    • Immunohistochemical staining of paraffin embedded rat cerebral cortex with purified ab109186 at a working dilution of 1/100. The secondary antibody used is ab97051, a HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L), at a dilution of 1/500. The sample is counter-stained with hematoxylin. Antigen retrieval was perfomed using Tris-EDTA buffer, pH 9.0. PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control, and is shown in the inset.

      This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab109186).

    • Unpurified ab109186 staining Olig2 in rat brain tissue sections by immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 in 0.1M PBS and blocked with 10% serum for 1 hour at 24°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in PBS + 10% donkey serum) for 4 hours at 24°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei stained with Hoechst (blue).
