Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab109709 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 56 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa).|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
FunctionIsoform Alpha is a retrovirus restriction factor, which mediates species-specific, early block to retrovirus infection. Targets retroviral capsid soon after entry into the cell, and prevents reverse transcription of the virus RNA genome. Isoform Alpha trimers may make multiple contacts with the hexameric lattice of CA proteins which constitute the surface of retrovirion core, and somehow inactivate the virus. Restricts efficiently infection by N-MLV, but not HIV-1. May have E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity.
PathwayProtein modification; protein ubiquitination.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TRIM/RBCC family.
Contains 1 B box-type zinc finger.
Contains 1 B30.2/SPRY domain.
Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.
DomainThe RING-type zinc finger domain mediates binding to an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme.
modificationsUbiquitinates itself in a RING finger- and UBE2D2-dependent manner (in vitro).

This antibody was raised against an immunogen that is predicted to recognize isoforms Alpha, Beta and Epsilon of TRIM5. The predicted molecular weights of isoforms Alpha, Beta and Epsilon are 56, 46 and 31 kDa respectively.
IHC image of TRIM5 alpha staining in human tonsil 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 ab109709, 1µg/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.
