The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).
Non-catalytic component of the 20S PRMT5-containing methyltransferase complex, which modifies specific arginines to dimethylarginines in several spliceosomal Sm proteins. This modification targets Sm proteins to the survival of motor neurons (SMN) complex for assembly into small nuclear ribonucleoprotein core particles. Might play a role in transcription regulation. The 20S PRMT5-containing methyltransferase complex also methylates the Piwi proteins (PIWIL1, PIWIL2 and PIWIL4), methylation of Piwi proteins being required for the interaction with Tudor domain-containing proteins and subsequent localization to the meiotic nuage.
Highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, spleen, testis, uterus, prostate and thymus. In testis, expressed in germ cells and Leydig cells, but not in peritubular myocytes, nor in Sertoli cells. Expressed in prostate cancers, in seminomas and in Leydig cell tumors.
Contains 5 WD repeats.
Expressed in Leydig cells during fetal testicular development, especially during the second semester. Germ cells expression is detected as early as 10 weeks of gestation.
Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Nuclear in Leydig cells and cytoplasmic in germ cells during fetal testicular development. In adult testis, predominantly nuclear. Subcellular location varies from nuclear to cytoplasmic in various tumors.
ICC/IF image of ab66299 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 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 (ab66299, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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). This antibody also gave a positive result in 100% methanol fixed (5 min) HepG2, MCF-7 cells at 1µg/ml, and in 4% pfa fixed (10 min) HeLa, HepG2, MCF-7 cells at 1µg/ml.
