Scientific Data Images for ABCE1 Antibody - BSA Free

Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence: ABCE1 Antibody [NB400-116] - ABCE1 antibody was tested in HeLa cells with Dylight 488 (green). Nuclei and alpha-tubulin were counterstained with DAPI (blue) and Dylight 550 (red).
Western Blot: ABCE1 Antibody [NB400-116] - WB analysis of ABCE1 in A431 lysate.
Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence: ABCE1 Antibody [NB400-116] - HeLa cells were fixed for 10 minutes using 10% formalin and then permeabilized for 5 minutes using 1X PBS + 0.05% Triton-X100. The cells were incubated with anti-ABCE1 at 2 ug/ml overnight at 4C and detected with an anti-rabbit Dylight 488 (Green) at a 1:500 dilution. Alpha tubulin (DM1A) NB100-690 was used as a co-stain at a 1:1000 dilution and detected with an anti-mouse Dylight 550 (Red) at a 1:500 dilution. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (Blue). Cells were imaged using a 40X objective.

Applications for ABCE1 Antibody - BSA Free

Recommended Usage

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence

2-5 ug/ml



Western Blot

Application Notes
This ABCE1 antibody is useful for Immunoprecipitaton, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, and Western Blot. In ICC/IF, mitochondrial staining was observed in HeLa cells. In Western Blot, a band was seen ~68 kD representing ABCE1. The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions of this antibody should be experimentally determined.

Background: ABCE1

ABCE1 (ATP-binding cassette sub-family E member 1), also named RLI or HP68, belongs to ABC transporter superfamily/ABCE family and is composed of two nucleotide binding domains and an N-terminal Fe-S binding domain. ABCE1 heterodimerizes with RNASEL leading to its inhibition and has the ability to associates with HIV-1 Vif, HIV-1, HIV-2 and SIV Gag proteins. Evolutionarily highly conserved, ABCE1 localize to cytoplasm/mitochondrion as well as to virus formation clusters at plasma membrane and its highest expression has been observed in brain, kidney, prostate etc. where it gets activated by HIV-1 or EMCV (encephalomyocarditis virus). Originally identified as an RNase L inhibitor, ABCE1 has now been implicated in more fundamental processes of translation and ribosome biogenesis, and can regulate functions including viral infection/assembly of immature HIV-1 capsids, tumor cell proliferation, anti-apoptosis and is also a candidate for tumor-suppressor protein.
