6B8_Purified_FMRP_WB_1_092618
Western blot of purified anti-FMRP antibody (clone 6B8/FMRP). Lane 1: Molecular weight marker; Lane 2: 30 µg of HeLa lysate. The blot was incubated with 10 µg/mL of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation with HRP labeled goat anti-mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405306). Enhanced chemiluminescence was used as the detection system.

    ICC staining of purified anti-FMRP antibody (clone 6B8/FMRP) on HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 4% PFA, permeabilized with a buffer containing 0.1% Triton X-100 and 0.25% BSA, and blocked with 2% normal goat serum and 0.02% BSA. The cells were then incubated with 5 µg/ml of the primary antibody for overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation wit 5 µg/ml of Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-Mouse IgG for one hour at room temperature. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI, and the slides were mounted with ProLongTM Gold Antifade Mountant. The image was captured with a 40X objective. Scale bar: 50 µm

Description

The gene encoding Fragile X mental retardation protein 1 (FMRP or FMR1), also known as premature ovarian failure 1 (POF1), contains multiple CGG sequence repeats that are positively correlated with impaired cognitive and reproductive function. FMRP may be involved in mRNA transport and synaptic protein synthesis. The gene that encodes FMRP is located in the X chromosome, and an abnormally large number of CGG repeats (200 - 1000 times) causes Fragile X syndrome due to inadequate amounts of FMRP, leading to severe learning deficiency and mental retardation.

Application

WB - Quality tested
ICC - Validated

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 2.0 - 10 µg per ml. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 5.0 - 10 μg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

This antibody is effective in immunoblotting (WB) and immunocytochemistry (ICC).

The epitope for 6B8/FMRP lies between amino acids 345-350 of human FMRP. This clone does not cross react with FXR1 or FXR2 and is human specific.

This clone is also known as 6B8.
