ab199093 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Alexa Fluor® 647), is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
FunctionThis protein is an auxiliary protein of DNA polymerase delta and is involved in the control of eukaryotic DNA replication by increasing the polymerase's processibility during elongation of the leading strand. Induces a robust stimulatory effect on the 3'-5' exonuclease and 3'-phosphodiesterase, but not apurinic-apyrimidinic (AP) endonuclease, APEX2 activities. Has to be loaded onto DNA in order to be able to stimulate APEX2.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the PCNA family.
modificationsUpon methyl methanesulfonate-induced DNA damage, mono-ubiquitinated by the UBE2B-RAD18 complex on Lys-164. This induces non-canonical polyubiquitination on Lys-164 through 'Lys-63' linkage of ubiquitin moieties by the E2 complex UBE2N-UBE2V2 and the E3 ligases, HLTF, RNF8 and SHPRH, which is required for DNA repair. 'Lys-63' polyubiquitination prevents genomic instability on DNA damage. Monoubiquitination at Lys-164 also takes place in undamaged proliferating cells, and is mediated by the DCX(DTL) complex, leading to enhance PCNA-dependent translesion DNA synthesis.
Acetylated in response to UV irradiation. Acetylation disrupts interaction with NUDT15 and promotes degradation.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Forms nuclear foci representing sites of ongoing DNA replication and vary in morphology and number during S phase. Together with APEX2, is redistributed in discrete nuclear foci in presence of oxidative DNA damaging agents.

ab193964 staining PCNA in HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (10 min) and then blocked in 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 1hr. The cells were then incubated with ab193964 at a working diltuion of 1 in 50 (shown in red) and ab7291 (Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to alpha Tubulin) at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C, followed by a further incubation at room temperature for 1hr with an AlexaFluor® 488 Goat anti-mouse IgG (H&L - preadsorbed) secondary (ab150117) at 2 μg/ml (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.
This product gave a positive signal in 4% formaldehyde (10 min) fixed HeLa cells under the same testing conditions.
Image was taken with a Confocal microscope (Leica-microsystems, TCS SP8).
Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab193964 (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 (ab193964, 2μl/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (Alexa Fluor® 647) (1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.
Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 25mW red solid state diode laser (635nm) and 675/30 bandpass filter.
This antibody gave a positive signal in HeLa fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
