product information

The retinoblastoma protein Rb is considered to be a key regulator of G1/S phase transition by blocking S phase entry and cell growth. Plant retinoblastoma-related (RBR) proteins share a homology with the human tumour suppressor retinoblastoma (pRb) protein. RBR protein functions are controlled by phosphorylation and protein-protein interactions. Short name: AtRBR

Additional information

Antibody is not suitable for immunolocalization.

Methanol concentration in a transfer buffer can be considerably reduced or for a better transfer of high MW proteins (even with PVDF membrane).

For immunoprecipitation start with 2 µl and titrate it depending upon your experimental conditions. Please note that you work with a total IgY fraction, which means that it will contain between 40-60 µg of total IgY (directed not only against retinoblastoma) therefore all of this IgY needs to be captured by the anti-IgY matrix.

As control pre-serum for IP this product can be used, total, pre-immune IgY

application example

western blot detection of plant retinoblastoma protein

35 µg of total proteins from Arabidopsis thaliana Col-0 cell suspension culture (1) or one week old seedlings (2) as well as 3.5ng of purified GST-RBR1 fusion protein (3) were separated on 8% Laemmli SDS polyacrylamide gels and blotted onto PVDF membrane overnight. Filters were blocked in 5% milk powder in TBS-0.05% Tween 20 (TBS-T) for 2 hours then probed with anti-RBR1 antibody (1:6000,  2 hours at RT) and HRP-conjugated rabbit anti-chicken IgY (PIERCE) secondary antibody (1: 20000, 1 hour at RT) in TBS-T containing 5% milk powder. After each antibody incubation steps filters were washed with TBS-T, TBS-T containing 2% milk powder, TBS-T for 10 min each on a rocking platform. Signal was developed with Super Signal West Pico chemiluminescent substrate (PIERCE) and visualized by exposing to a film (Agfa Cronex 5) for 5 min.
