The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 63 kDa).
Necessary for the degradation of mRNAs, both in normal mRNA turnover and in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Removes the 7-methyl guanine cap structure from mRNA molecules, yielding a 5'-phosphorylated mRNA fragment and 7m-GDP. Contributes to the transactivation of target genes after stimulation by TGFB1.
Detected in heart, brain, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney and pancreas.
Belongs to the DCP1 family.
Cytoplasm > P-body. Nucleus. Co-localizes with NANOS3 in the processing bodies (By similarity). Predominantly cytoplasmic, in processing bodies (PB). Nuclear, after TGFB1 treatment. Translocation to the nucleus depends on interaction with SMAD4.
ICC/IF image of ab66009 stained HepG2 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 (ab66009, 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) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
