Immunoprecipitation Validated

for AbFlex Suz12 antibody (rAb)Application Notes

Validated Applications:
Immunoprecipitation (IP): 2 µg per IP

Note: For optimal results, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for detection of Suz12.

AbFlex® recombinant antibodies are genetically derived from DNA sequences of parental hybridoma clones. For details on the parental clone, see Catalog No. 39877.

AbFlex® Suz12 antibody (rAb) tested by Immunoprecipitation
300 µg of HeLa cell nuclear extract was immunoprecipitated with 5 µg of either AbFlex Suz12 antibody (Lane 1) or Mouse IgG (Lane 2). Immunoprecipitated proteins were run on SDS-PAGE and probed using a polyclonal antibody specific for Suz12 (Cat. No. 39357) at 2 µg/ml. On the gel, antibody heavy chains (50 kDa) and light chains (25 kDa) are visible.

for AbFlex Suz12 antibody (rAb)Background

AbFlex® antibodies are recombinant antibodies (rAbs) that have been generated using defined DNA sequences to produce highly specific, reproducible antibodies. Each AbFlex antibody contains a 6XHis tag, an avidin tag sequence for enzymatic biotin conjugation using the biotin ligase, AbFlex® Suz12 antibody was expressed as full-length IgG with mouse immunoglobulin heavy and light chains (IgG2a isotype) in mammalian 293 cells.

Suz12 (Suppressor-of-Zeste 12 protein, also designated as ChET9, JJAZ1 protein) is a component of the Polycomb group complexes 2, 3 and 4 (PRC2, PRC3 and PRC4), which also contain the histone methyltransferase EZH2, EED (Embryonic Ectoderm Development protein) protein and the histone-binding proteins RbAP46 and RbAP48. PRC2 is responsible for di- and trimethylation of histone 3 at lysine 27 (Histone H3 dimethyl Lys27 and Histone H3 trimethyl Lys27), which leads to transcriptional repression of the target genes. Suz12 is a nuclear protein belonging to the VEFS family. Suz12 contains a zinc-finger binding motif and a VEFS box, which is required for the interaction between Suz12 and EZH2.

Bridging Antibody to Improve ChIP, MeDIP and IP

Some isotypes of mouse IgG antibodies do not bind well to protein G-conjugated agarose/magnetic beads, which are commonly used in ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments. Capture efficiency can be improved by including an anti-mouse IgG bridging antibody because it binds with a strong affinity to both the protein G beads and the mouse IgG antibody. By increasing the affinity of the mouse primary antibody for the protein G bead, the Bridging Antibody for Mouse IgG can help improve the results of all ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments that use AbFlex® Suz12 antibody (rAb).

for AbFlex Suz12 antibody (rAb)Storage

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.

for AbFlex Suz12 antibody (rAb)Guarantee

This product is for research use only and is not for use in diagnostic procedures. This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of arrival.
