Target

  • Function

    Integral component of the filamentous matrix of the centrosome involved in the initial establishment of organized microtubule arrays in both mitosis and meiosis. Plays a role, together with DISC1, in the microtubule network formation. Is an integral component of the pericentriolar material (PCM). May play an important role in preventing premature centrosome splitting during interphase by inhibiting NEK2 kinase activity at the centrosome.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in all tissues tested, including placenta, liver, kidney and thymus.
  • Involvement in disease

    Microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism 2
  • Domain

    Composed of a coiled-coil central region flanked by non-helical N- and C-terminals.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > microtubule organizing center > centrosome. Centrosomal at all stages of the cell cycle. Remains associated with centrosomes following microtubule depolymerization. Colocalized with DISC1 at the centrosome.

Images

  • Immunofluorescent analysis of 100% Methanol-fixed NIH/3T3 (mouse embyro fibroblast cell line) cells labeling Pericentrin with ab220784 at 1/2000 dilution, followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (green). Confocal image showing centrosome staining in NIH/3T3 cell line.

    The nuclear counter stain is DAPI (blue). Tubulin is detected with Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) (ab195889) (red) at 1/200 dilution.

    Secondary antibody only control: Used PBS instead of primary antibody, secondary antibody is Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution.

  • Immunofluorescent analysis of 100% Methanol-fixed HeLa (human epithelial cell line from cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labeling Pericentrin with ab220784 at 1/2000 dilution, followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (green).

  • Pericentrin was immunoprecipitated from 0.35 mg HepG2 (Human liver hepatocellular carcinoma cell line) whole cell lysate with ab220784 at 1/30 dilution. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab220784 at 1/1000 dilution. VeriBlot for IP Detection Reagent (HRP) (ab131366), was used for detection at 1/1000 dilution.

    Lane 1: HepG2 whole cell lysate 10 μg (input).
    Lane 2: ab220784 IP in HepG2 whole cell lysate (+).
    Lane 3: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) instead of ab220784 in HepG2 whole cell lysate (-).

    Blocking and dilution buffer and concentration: 5% NFDM/TBST
    Exposure time: 30 seconds

    The 220 kDa band represent an isoform of Pericentrin (PMID: 23060948). We used a high sensitivity ECL substrate to develop this blot.
