Target

  • Function
    Receptor for TNFSF11/RANKL/TRANCE/OPGL; essential for RANKL-mediated osteoclastogenesis. Involved in the regulation of interactions between T-cells and dendritic cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitous expression with high levels in skeletal muscle, thymus, liver, colon, small intestine and adrenal gland.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in TNFRSF11A are the cause of familial expansile osteolysis (FEO) [MIM:174810]. FEO is a rare autosomal dominant bone disorder characterized by focal areas of increased bone remodeling. The osteolytic lesions develop usually in the long bones during early adulthood. FEO is often associated with early onset deafness and loss of dentition.
    Defects in TNFRSF11A are a cause of Paget disease of bone type 2 (PDB2) [MIM:602080]; also known as familial Paget disease of bone. PDB2 is a bone-remodeling disorder with clinical similarities to FEO. Unlike FEO, however, affected individuals have involvement of the axial skeleton with lesions in the spine, pelvis and skull.
    Defects in TNFRSF11A are the cause of osteopetrosis autosomal recessive type 7 (OPTB7) [MIM:612301]; also called osteoclast-poor osteopetrosis with hypogammaglobulinemia. Osteopetrosis is a rare genetic disease characterized by abnormally dense bone, due to defective resorption of immature bone. The disorder occurs in two forms: a severe autosomal recessive form occurring in utero, infancy, or childhood, and a benign autosomal dominant form occurring in adolescence or adulthood. OPTB7 is characterized by paucity of osteoclasts, suggesting a molecular defect in osteoclast development. OPTB7 is associated with hypogammaglobulinemia.

Images

  • Formaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded human skin tissue stained for RANK using ab13918 at 1/50 dilution in immunohistochemical analysis.

    See Abreview

  • Detection of RANK in RAW cells. Lane 1: mouse cell line. Lane 2 & 3: IP/Western blot analysis of RANK. RANK protein from RAW cell lysate was immunoprecipitated either with control antibody (lane 2) or ab13918 (lane 3), and detected with ab13918.

  • IHC image of ab13918 staining in human t cell lymphoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab13918, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

Answer

Thank you for your response.

The identities of ab13918 with canine were 81%, with 89% positives and some gaps. This is generally the absolute limit for what we consider to be effective. I chose to recommend ab22106 because it was created with a shorter immunogen which shared similar identies. However the differences between the canine and immunogen are at the very end residues whereas the the differences with ab13918 are scattered throughout.

I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.

Thank you for your reply. I am pleased to provide the following information: We have two RANK antibodies tested flow cytometry, human and mouse (not IHC or rat): ab45092 RANK antibody [9A725] (Phycoerythrin) Mouse monoclonal Tested applications: Flow Cyt Reacts with: Human, Mouse  Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=45092). ab13918 RANK antibody [64C1385] Mouse monoclonal Applications: Flow Cyt, IP, WB Reacts with: Human, Mouse  Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=13918). One antibody tested in IHC-P, mouse and human (not rat or flow cytometry):   ab45039 Anti-RANKL antibody [12A668] Mouse monoclonal Tested applications: ICC/IF, IHC-P, WB Reacts with: Human, Mouse Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=45039). I am sorry to confirm we have no RANK antibodies tested in rat. Regrettably I am not able to find the correct rat sequence on the protein database sites, and so am not able to check the alignments with rat.  If you have access to the rat sequence, I can suggest to try alignment to the immunogen for these antibodies. We recommend alignment should be over 85% to predict that an antibody will detect in a different species. I am sorry we also do not have an antibody tested and guaranteed in both IHC and flow cytometry. If you would like to test one of the antibodies in one of these untested applications, we would be able to provide a testing discount offer. Please let me know if you are interested, and I will be pleased to forward the details. This also applies to the rat species. If the alignment is over 70% , we would be able to provide a testing discount for you to try in rat. I am sorry we do not have an antibody that is tested to meet all your requirements on this occasion, but I hope these ones will still be of interest to you.  If you have any further questions, or are interested in the testing discount, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your email. I have instructed our accounting department to issue a refund for your order for ab13918. If you have any questions regarding the refund, please contact accounts@abcam.com If I can be of additional assistance, just let me know. Have a nice weekend!

Answer

Thank you for your email and patience. I enquired with the originator of this antibody and evidently RANK is a tricky protein to detect and depending upon how the RAW cells were cultured, you may or may not see a signal. However, I would expect that with a dilution as high as 1:100 and incubation overnight at 4C (which you said that you tried) that you would see something. There have not been any problems with this lot reported, but I can offer to send a free of charge replacement vial from a newer batch. Alternatively, I can offer a refund or credit note. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry and I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulty with ab13918 in Western blotting. I do need a few more details in order to trouble-shoot this: How much protein did you load? Did you use reducing conditions? How were your samples prepared? What did you block with? Is the secondary antibody working with other primaries? Did you check that the protein transferred properly to the membrane? Also, what was the purchase order number or Abcam reference number that was used when you ordered this antibody? Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
