Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab119436 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 a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 37 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 43 kDa).|
FunctionFunctions as an androgen transport protein, but may also be involved in receptor mediated processes. Each dimer binds one molecule of steroid. Specific for 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone, testosterone, and 17-beta-estradiol. Regulates the plasma metabolic clearance rate of steroid hormones by controlling their plasma concentration.
Tissue specificityIsoform 1 and isoform 2 are present in liver and testis.
Sequence similaritiesContains 2 laminin G-like domains.
Cellular localizationSecreted. In testis, it is synthesized by the Sertoli cells, secreted into the lumen of the seminiferous tubule and transported to the epididymis.

ab119436 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 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 ab119436 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.

Developed using the ECL technique.
Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 43 kDa
Observed band size: 37 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Exposure time: 4 minutes
The band observed at 37 kDa could potentially be a cleaved form of Sex Hormone Binding Globulin/SHBG due to the presence of a 29 amino acid signal peptide.
