    Immunofluorescence of HeLa cells with (A) mouse IgG1, κ isotype control (Negative, Cat. No. 401402) or (B) NUP153 Mouse primary antibody (Clone QE5). 2 μg/ml (1:250 dilution) Alexa Fluor® 594 (Red) Goat anti-Mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405326) was used as secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (Blue, Cat. No. 422801). The image was captured with a 60X objective objective using KEYENCE BZ-X700 fluorescence microscope. Exposure time is 300 ms. Concentrations 4 µg/ml.

    Total lysates (15 µg protein) from Daudi, HEL (Human), COS-7 (Monkey), Raw264.7 (Mouse), UMR106 (Rat) and CHO (Hamster) were resolved by electrophoresis (4-20% Tris-glycine gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 1:1000 (1 µg/ml) purified NUP153 antibody, clone QE5. Proteins were visualized using chemiluminescence detection by incubation with HRP Goat anti-Mouse secondary antibody (Cat. No. 405306, 1:3000 dilution). Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-&betal-actin was used as a loading control (Cat. No. 643807, 1:8000 dilution).

Nucleoporin 153 (Nup153) is a component of the nuclear pore complex, and is required for the anchoring of the nuclear pore complex to the nuclear pore membrane. Nup153 has a critical role in the nuclear export of proteins and RNA, and is involved in the retention of unspliced mRNAs in the nucleus.

IEM - Reported in the literature, not verified in house

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunocytochemistry. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration of 4.0 μg/ml (1:250 dilution) is recommended. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 1.0 - 2.0 µg per ml (1:500-1:1000 dilution). For immunoprecipitation, the suggested use of this reagent is 1:50 dilution. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

This antibody is effective in immunoblotting, immunocytochemistry (ICC) and immunoprecipitation (IP).

*Predicted MW = 250 kD

This antibody recognizes NUP153 as well as two related nuclear pore complex proteins: NUP214 and p62. By immunofluorescence, QE5 labels the nuclear envelope of eukaryotic cells giving a punctate staining pattern.

Predicted MW is ~ 250 kD, observed MW is ~154 kD. Lower bands (~ 60 kD) maybe the tripartite structure of NUP153, which consists of a zinc finger domain flanked by large (60-70 kD) NH2- and COOH-terminal domains9.
