The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 68 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 52 kDa).
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.
May be a regulated effector of stress granule assembly. Phosphorylation-dependent sequence-specific endoribonuclease in vitro. Cleaves exclusively between cytosine and adenine and cleaves MYC mRNA preferentially at the 3'-UTR. ATP- and magnesium-dependent helicase. Unwinds preferentially partial DNA and RNA duplexes having a 17 bp annealed portion and either a hanging 3' tail or hanging tails at both 5'- and 3'-ends. Unwinds DNA/DNA, RNA/DNA, and RNA/RNA substrates with comparable efficiency. Acts unidirectionally by moving in the 5' to 3' direction along the bound single-stranded DNA.
Phosphorylated exclusively on serine residues. Hyperphosphorylated in quiescent fibroblasts. Hypophosphorylation leads to a decrease in endoribonuclease activity (By similarity). RASA1-dependent phosphorylation of Ser-149 induces a conformational change that prevents self-association. Dephosphorylation after HRAS activation is required for stress granule assembly. Ser-149 phosphorylation induces partial nuclear localization. Arg-435 is dimethylated, probably to asymmetric dimethylarginine.
Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Cell membrane. Nucleus. Cytoplasmic in proliferating cells, can be recruited to the plasma membrane in exponentially growing cells (By similarity). Cytosolic and partially nuclear in resting cells. Recruited to stress granules (SGs) upon either arsenite or high temperature treatment. Recruitment to SGs is influenced by HRAS.
ICC/IF image of ab38463 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 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 (ab38463, 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.
