  • Target

    • Function
      Enzyme with a broad specificity. Negatively regulates TGF-beta signaling through dephosphorylating SMAD2 and SMAD3, resulting in their dissociation from SMAD4, nuclear export of the SMADs and termination of the TGF-beta-mediated signaling.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the PP2C family.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus.

      ab14824 was shown to specifically react with PPM1A when PPM1A knockout samples were used. Wild-type and PPM1A knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab14824 diluted to 1/250 and ab18251 (loading control to alpha Tubulin) diluted to 1/10000 were incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216772) and Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD)  preadsorbed (ab216777) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

    • Ab14824 staining human colon. Staining is localised to cytoplasm.
      Left panel: with primary antibody at 4ug/ml. Right panel: isotype control.
      Sections were stained using an automated system DAKO Autostainer Plus , at room temperature. Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3-in-1 antigen retrieval buffer EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT Link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 minutes. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 minutes and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.

    Answer

    Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab14824. I am sorry that you are experiencing difficulties with the most recent lot that you received. As this is a monoclonal antibody, I would not expect much lot to lot variation, but I would advise two modifications. I would first recommend increasing the concentration of primary antibody. We do recommend a range of 1:250 - 1:1000. Additionally, you did not indicate the amount of protein loaded, but is it possible to increase the amount loaded? Have you tested a whole cell lysate to confirm that there are no issues with the extraction kit you are using? If these suggestions do not improve your results, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss a replacement or refund for this product per our Abpromise guarantee. Best of luck with your experiments!

    Answer

    Thank you for your enquiry. I am sorry we regrettably haven’t tested the cross reactivity of ab14824 PPM1A antibody [p6c7] with other PP2C isoforms. By looking at the Western Blot image on the datasheet, we believe there’s a possibility that it is PP2C alpha specific. However, the homology between PP2C alpha and PP2C beta is 76.6% so it may cross react with the beta isoform. (the homology with PPM1N was 40%, and with other isoforms, it was around 20%) I’m sorry we couldn’t provide more information on this occasion, but if you need anything else, please contact me without hesitation.
