Alternative Name RPE65 (RPE65 Antibody Abstract)
Background Highly conserved among vertebrate species, RPE65 is a major protein of the retinalpigment epithelium (RPE). RPE65 is essential for the regeneration of rhodopsin in thevisual cycle. Mutations in RPE65 are responsible for certain forms of autosomalrecessive severe retinal dystrophy, including Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA). Lossof function results in a block in retinoid processing required for the synthesis of 11-cisretinal and the accumulation of retinyl esters in the RPE. Alternate Names: anti-LCA2 antibody, anti-Leber congenital amaurosis antibody, anti-Retinal pigmentepithelium-specific 65 kDa protein antibody, anti-Retinal pigment epithelium-specificprotein antibody, anti-Retinitis pigmentosa 20 antibody, anti-RP20 antibody.
Gene Symbol: RPE65
Gene ID 6121, 282043
UniProt Q28175
Research Area Signaling, Metabolism, Neurology
Application Notes Immunohistochemistry and western blot. By Western blot, this RPE65 antibody recognizes a band at ~65 kDa, representing bovine RPE65 protein. It has also been tested on recombinant human protein in COS7 cells. It may also be used in immunohistochemistry-Frozen, on murine retinal sections and ICC in porcine.
Recommended dilutions: Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence 1:10-1:500, Immunohistochemistry 1:250, Immunohistochemistry-Frozen 1:250, Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin, Western Blot 1:500 - 1:1000
Protocol Protocol specific for RPE65 Antibody Western Blot
1. Bovine RPE membrane (5ug) and recombinant human RPE65 (~20ug ) expressed in COS7 cells were loaded on a NuPAGE Novex Bis-Tris 10 %gel along with SeeBlue Plus2 marker.
. Run in NuPAGE MOPS electrophoresis buffer (Invitrogen). 3 Samples were probed with NB 100-355 RPE65 antibody (1:5,000 ) followed by alkaline phosphatase-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG incubation.
. Visualized by NBT/BCIP substrate.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Liquid
Concentration 1.0 mg/mL
Buffer PBS, Sodium Azide
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.
Handling Advice Avoid freeze-thaw cycles
Storage -20 °C
Storage Comment Aliquot and store at -20 °C or -80 °C.
