  • Function

    ATP-dependent 5'-3' DNA helicase, component of the core-TFIIH basal transcription factor. Involved in nucleotide excision repair (NER) of DNA by opening DNA around the damage, and in RNA transcription by RNA polymerase II by anchoring the CDK-activating kinase (CAK) complex, composed of CDK7, cyclin H and MAT1, to the core-TFIIH complex. Involved in the regulation of vitamin-D receptor activity. As part of the mitotic spindle-associated MMXD complex it plays a role in chromosome segregation. Might have a role in aging process and could play a causative role in the generation of skin cancers.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in ERCC2 are the cause of xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group D (XP-D) [MIM:278730]; also known as XP group D (XPD). Xeroderma pigmentosum is an autosomal recessive pigmentary skin disorder characterized by solar hypersensitivity of the skin, high predisposition for developing cancers on areas exposed to sunlight and, in some cases, neurological abnormalities. Some XP-D patients present features of Cockayne syndrome, including dwarfism, sensorineural deafness, microcephaly, mental retardation, pigmentary retinopathy, ataxia, decreased nerve conduction velocities.
    Defects in ERCC2 are a cause of trichothiodystrophy photosensitive (TTDP) [MIM:601675]. TTDP is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by sulfur-deficient brittle hair and nails, ichthyosis, mental retardation, impaired sexual development, abnormal facies and cutaneous photosensitivity correlated with a nucleotide excision repair (NER) defect. Neonates with trichothiodystrophy and ichthyosis are usually born with a collodion membrane. The severity of the ichthyosis after the membrane is shed is variable, ranging from a mild to severe lamellar ichthyotic phenotype. There are no reports of skin cancer associated with TTDP.
    Defects in ERCC2 are the cause of cerebro-oculo-facio-skeletal syndrome type 2 (COFS2) [MIM:610756]. COFS is a degenerative autosomal recessive disorder of prenatal onset affecting the brain, eye and spinal cord. After birth, it leads to brain atrophy, hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, hypotonia, cataracts, microcornea, optic atrophy, progressive joint contractures and growth failure. Facial dysmorphism is a constant feature. Abnormalities of the skull, eyes, limbs, heart and kidney also occur.

  • XPD antibody (ab54676) at 1ug/lane + HeLa cell lysate at 25ug/lane.

    This image was generated using the ascites version of the product.

  • XPD was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Hela whole cell extract, 10µg of Mouse monoclonal to XPD and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Hela whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab54676.
    Secondary: Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG light chain specific (HRP) at 1/5000 dilution.
    Band: 150kDa: SMC1; Non specific - 41 and 42kDa: We are unsure as to the identity of this extra band.

    This image was generated using the ascites version of the product.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab54676 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab54676, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Antworten.

Ich möchte noch eine Anmerkung bezüglich der Positivkontrolle im Falle des ab54676und ab96089machen: Laut UniGene expremierencolorektale Tumore nicht besonders viel von der entsprechenden RNA. Für den ab54676würde ich daher eher eine Lymphoma Zelllinie wie Daudi empfehlen. Da ich leider im Falle des ab96089keine Alternative empfehlen kann, möchte ich vorschlagen, dass Sie die Ladung auf 50 ug erhöhen.

Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen weiter. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls sich Ihre Ergebnisse nicht verbessern.

Vielen Dank für Ihren Anruf und dafür, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, unseren Fragebogen auszufüllen.

Es tut mir leid, dass Sie Probleme mit unseren Antikörper hatten.

Um Ihr Problem zu lösen, möchte ich die folgenden Vorschläge zu Veränderung Ihres Protokolls machen, bzw noch ein paar zusätzliche Fragen stellen:

1. Um was für Zelllinien handelt es sich hier, bzw aus welcher Spezies wurden die Zellen ursprünglich gewonnen? Sind die Zellen transfektiert?

2. Was ist Ihre Positiv- Kontrolle?

3.Verwenden Sie einen Anti-Mouse Sekundär- AKim falle der ab54645 und ab54676?

4. Verwenden Sie immer einen frischen Blot pro Antikörper oder strippen Sie diesen zwischendurch?

5. Haben Sie Ihre Zellen transfektiert oder wollen Sie das endogene Protein detektieren? Für den ersten Fall senken Sie den Proteingehalt auf 5- 10ug pro Bahn ab, im zweiten Fall gehen Sie runter auf 20 ug.

6. Filtern Sie die Blockmittelllösung, dadurch sollten die schwarzen Punkte verschwinden und die Ergebnisse klarer werden.

7. Senken Sie die Konzentration der Sekundär- Antikörper auf mindestens 1/5000 ab.

8. Blockieren Sie weiterhin eine Stunde und inkubieren sie in der höchsten von uns empfohlenenVerdünnung über Nacht bei 4C.

Bitte lassen Sie mich wissen, ob ich Ihnen helfen konnte und zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls Sie weitere Fragen haben.
