Application example

western blot using anti-AGO1 antibodies

80 µg of Arabidopsis thaliana soluble total cell extract (extracted in 20 mMTris pH 7.5, 5mM MgCl2, 2.5mM DTT, 300 mM NaCl, 0.1% NP-40, 1% proteasome inhibitor MG132) was separated on 6% SDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to nitrocellulose. Filters were blocked 1h with 5% low-fat milk powder in TBS-TT (0.25% TWEEN20; 0.1% Triton-X) and probed with anti-AGO1 antibody (1:10 000, 1h) and secondary anti-rabbit (1:10000, 1 h) antibody (HRP conjugated) in TBS-TT containing 5% low fat milk powder. Antibody incubationswere followed by washings in TBS-TT. All steps were performed at RT withagitation. Blots were developed for 5 min with ECL-PLUS detection reagent according the manufacturer's instructions. Exposure time was 5 seconds.

Roche protease inhibitor cocktail (no EDTA) can also be applied in extraction buffer.

Antibody binds microRNA and tasiRNAs, preference for 21nt miRNAs with 5'U.

Recommended for detection of AGO1: extreme low femtogram range chemiluminescent detection reagent

AGO expression may be tissue specific and using floral tissue is recommended where most of the AGOs are expressed the highest. Use of proteasome inhibitors as MG132 can help to stabilize AGO proteins during extraction procedure. Buffer for extraction of AGO proteins: Paudel et al. 2018.

The AGO1 antibody is extremely specific to AGO1 and does not cross-react with other antibodies. The evidence is 1) the peptide to which it was raised is at the very N-terminus of the protein and is not present in other AGOs 2) aAGO1 does not cross react with the AGOs which are overexpressed (AGO2, AGO3, AGO4, AGO5, AGO6, AGO9) using a western blot.

AGO1 belongs to a group of argonaute proteins which are catalytic component of the RNA-incudes silencing complex (RISC). This protein complex is responsible for the gene silencing (RNAi).
