Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab6084 (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 (ab6084, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. 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.
Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence - Anti-Gemin 2 antibody [2E17] (ab6084)Image from Morency E et al, J Cell Biol. 2007 Jun 4;177(5):757-68, Fig 4f. DOI 10.1083/jcb.200612107.
HeLa cells were transfected with an ICP0-expressing plasmid before IF assays to detect the distribution of CB- and gem-associated proteins. ab6084 used at a 1/200 dilution to detect Gemin 2 (green). Bar 5 µm.
