Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab5338 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 64 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 57 kDa).|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
RelevanceThe PDD1 gene sequence predicts a novel polypeptide containing two copies of a chromodomain, a conserved domain found in a number of heterochromatin-associated proteins (Koonin et al. 1995). Consistent with this finding, Pdd1p localizes to electron-dense heterochromatic structures that concentrate at the periphery of macronuclear anlagen during the time when DNA deletion occurs.

ab5338 staining Pdd1 in wild-type Tetrahymena sp. cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. Cells were fixed in methanol. The primary antibody was diluted 1/250 in TBS + 1% Goat Serum and incubated with the sample for 18 hours at 4°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit polyclonal, diluted 1/1000.
All lanes : Anti-Pdd1 antibody (ab5338) at 1/1000 dilution
Lane 1 : Wild-type Tetrahymena sp. Starved Tetrahymena, do not express pdd1p (hour 0)
Lane 2 : Wild-type Tetrahymena sp. Conjugating Tetrahymena, peak of pdd1p expression (hour 9)
Lysates/proteins at 15000 cells per lane.
All lanes : HRP-conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit at 1/5000 dilution
Developed using the ECL technique.
Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 57 kDa
Observed band size: 64 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
