  • Function

    Ligand-activated transcription factor. Receptor that binds peroxisome proliferators such as hypolipidemic drugs and fatty acids. Has a preference for poly-unsaturated fatty acids, such as gamma-linoleic acid and eicosapentanoic acid. Once activated by a ligand, the receptor binds to promoter elements of target genes. Regulates the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway of fatty acids. Functions as transcription activator for the acyl-CoA oxidase gene. Decreases expression of NPC1L1 once activated by a ligand.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitous with maximal levels in placenta and skeletal muscle.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.

  • ICC/IF image of ab8937 stained HepG2 cells (ab7900). The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum (ab7481) / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab8937, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

AbCam Technical Support: I have written the answers below in CAPITAL letters beneath each issue. Thanks for any help you can provide > Also, please include the lot number (located on your vial) 68633 and the Abcam order number or purchase order number that was used. 1. Please describe the problem (high background, wrong band size, more bands, no band etc). THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE BAND THAT STAINS MOST INTENSELY IS LOCATED AROUND 70-75 kDA. MULITPLE OTHER BANDS APPEAR WITH LONGER EXPOSURE TIMES AND IT IS UNCLEAR WHICH BAND, IF ANY, REPRESENTS PPAR b. 2. On what material are you testing the antibody in WB? Species? HUMAN Cell extract/ Nuclear extract? CYTOPLASMIC AND NUCLEAR PROTEIN EXTRACTS FROM TWO DIFFERENT HUMAN CELL LINES Purified protein? NO Recombinant protein? NO 3. How much protein did you load? 34 ug/WELL (SEB-1 CELL LINE) AND 70 ug/WELL (HaCaT CELL LINE) I COULD NOT DETERMINE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO CONCENTRATIONS ON THE BLOT How did you prepare the lysate for the analysis (protease inhibitors) SAMPLES WERE PREPARED USING NE-PER NUCLEAR AND CYTOPLASMIC EXTRACTION REAGENTS KIT FROM PIERCE AS DIRECTED IN THE MANUFACTURERS PROTOCOL. PROTEASE INHIBITORS WERE ADDED. Did you heat the samples? SAMPLES WERE HEATED TO 70º C FOR 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO LOADING ON GEL. 4. Primary Antibody ABCAM PPAR DELTA AB 8937 Specification (in which species was it raised against)? RABBIT POLYCLONAL At what dilution(s) have you tested this antibody? 1:1000 Incubation time, wash step? INCUBATED OVERNIGHT AT 4º C AND THEN WASHED 3 x 5 MINUTES IN TBS-T (0.05% TWEEN) 5. Secondary Antibody ANTI-RABBIT HRP FROM CELL SIGNALLING TECHNOLOGY. Specification (in which species was it raised against)? RABBIT At what dilution(s) have you tested this antibody? 1:2000 Incubation time, wash step? INCUABTED FOR 1 HOUR AT ROOM TEMPERATURE IN 5% DRY MILK, TWEEN-20 (0.05%) AND THEN WASHED 2 X 5 MINUTES IN TBS-T AND 1 X 5 MINUTES IN TBS Do you know whether the problems you are experiencing come from the secondary? SECONDARY ANTIBODY HAS BEEN USED NUMEROUS TIMES WITHOUT A PROBLEM 6. What detection method are you using? SUPERSIGNAL WEST PICO CHEMILUMINENCENT SUBSTRATE KIT FROM PIERCE AS DIRECTED. 7. Background bands Have you eliminated the possibility that any background bands could be due to the secondary antibody? (Run a â??No primaryâ?? control) YES AND LANE IS CLEAR OF BANDS Is the blocking step sufficient? (We recommend blocking the membrane by adding 20 ml of blocking buffer (5% non-fat dry milk, 0.1% Tween-20 in TBS). Incubate for 2 h at room temperature or overnight at 4°C with agitation) BLOCKING FOR 1 HOUR HAS ALWAYS BEEN SUFFICENT FOR US. Are your washing steps sufficiently stringent? (Multiple short washes are more effective than fewer longer wash steps) WASHING 3 X 5 MINUTES AS IS STANDARD IN MOST PROTOCOLS At what size are the bands migrating? Could they be degradation products of your target? THE MAJOR BAND IN QUESTION IS THE ONE THAT MIGRATES AROUND 70-75 kDA, WHY IS THIS ONE MORE INTENSE THAN THE OTEHRS??? WHICH BAND IS THE CORRECT ONE FOR PPAR DELTA???????? Please provide an image of your blot (as an e-mail attachment, a faxed image is not sufficient) 8. Optimization attempts How many times have you tried the Western? NUMEROUS TIMES WITH OTHER COMPANY ANTIBODY AND NEVER GOTTEN RESULTS LIKE THIS. BLOT IS FREE OF BACKGROUND JUST BANDS IN WRONG PLACE. Do you obtain the same results every time e.g. are background bands always in the same place? N/A What steps have you altered? N/A 9. Did you apply positive and negative controls along with the samples? Please specify. NEGATIVE CONTROL WAS PRIMARY ANTIBODY ALONE. WE DID NOT RUN ANY SAMPLES AS POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE CONTROLS.

Thank you for the details that you have provided us with. This antibody has been characterized in Western blotting using 3T3 cell lysate, and we have not specifically tested it with human samples (although it is expected to cross-react due to sequence homology). So I would strongly suggest running a positive control, such as 3T3 lysate. We saw a band at approximately 53 kDa using ab8937 with 3T3 lysate. I was unfortunately unable to open the attachment that you sent, but to try to get reduce the number of multiple bands that you are seeing, you may want to decrease the concentrations of both the primary and secondary antibodies. However, in your case the one thing that I think you need to do is run a positive control. If you need further assistance, please contact us again.
