This antibody was isolated during a screen for mAbs against yeast nucleolar proteins. Specificity was determined by screening a yeast genomic library in lambda gt11. Two individually isolated, different positive clones were found. Sequencing revealed that in both clones beta-galactosidase was fused at the EcoRI site to the amino acid sequence beginning with …EFEH190 in Nsr1p. Thus, it is likely to react with an epitope(s) in the C-terminal 55% of Nsr1p.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/5000. (yeast cells).
1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 66 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 kDa). For non-ECL western detection methods, 1/1000 - 1/5000.
Nsr1p is localized in the nucleolus and binds to the single-stranded telomeric repeat sequence (TG1-3)n. It has a role in ribosomal RNA maturation and possibly in transport of proteins into the nucleus.

ab4642 (1/5000) detecting Nsr1p in DDY1810 (red). Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with methanol/acetone and counterstained with DAPI in order to highlight the nucleus (blue). Right hand panel: negative control performed using Saccharomyces cerevisae DDY1810 nsr1p knockout. For further experimental details please refer to Abreview.
