ab31689 gave a positive signal in the following whole cell lysates:
HeLa (Human epithelial carcinoma cell line)
Jurkat (Human T cell lymphoblast-like cell line)
HEK 293 (Human embryonic kidney cell line).
Shipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/250. Detects a band of approximately 169 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 169 kDa).
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Gemin 5 is part of a large macromolecular complex localized to both the cytoplasm and the nucleus that plays a role in the cytoplasmic assembly of small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (snRNPs). Other members of this complex include SMN, Gemin 2 (SIP1), Gemin 3 (DDX20), and Gemin 4.
ICC/IF image of ab31689 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were PFA fixed (10 min), permabilised in TBS-T (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab31689, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to quench autofluorescence and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. 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). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).
