Immunogen

This Ago3 (Argonaute 3) antibody was raised against a recombinant protein corresponding to amino acids 1-175 of human Ago3.

Buffer

Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

Background

Argonaute 3 (Ago3, aka EIF2C3) is a member of the Argonaute family of proteins involved in RNAi mediated gene silencing through siRNA and miRNA effectors. The Argonaute proteins are part of RISC, the RNAi Induced Silencing Complex. Ago3, however, lacks RNase activity and does not appear to cleave target mRNA molecules. Ago3 has both a PAZ and a PIWI domain, indicative of the Argonaute family of proteins.

MicroRNA-3´UTR Interaction Products

If you are interested in this antibody, you may also have an interest in products for studying the functional impact of miRNA-3´UTR interactions. The LightSwitch™ 3´UTR Reporter GoClone™ Collection includes over 12,000 human 3´UTRs that have been cloned into the pLightSwitch_3UTR vector for use in luciferase reporter assays. These constructs can be co-transfected with our collections of LightSwitch miRNA Mimics and Inhibitors to study the effects of over-expression of a miRNA of interest, or to knock down the expression of endogenous human miRNAs in living cells.
