Application

RNA Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation (microRNA):
RIP Lysate prepared from HeLa cells (2 X 107 cell equivalents per IP) were subjected to immunoprecipitation using 5 µL of either a normal mouse IgG or 5 µL of Anti-Ago2 antibody and the Magna RIP® RNA-Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation Kit (Cat. # 17-700).
Successful immunoprecipitation of Ago2-associated microRNA was verified by TaqMan microRNA assay, hsa-miR-23a. (Please see figures).
Please refer to the Magna RIP (Cat. # 17-700) or EZ-Magna RIP (Cat. # 17-701) protocol for experimental details.


Immunoprecipitation from RIP lysate:
Representative lot data.
RIP lysate from HeLa cells (2 X 106 cell equivalents per IP) was subjected to immunoprecipitation using 0.5 µL of either a normal mouse IgG or Anti-Ago2 antibody. Precipitated proteins (lane 1: mouse IgG, lane 2: anti-Ago2) and HeLa whole cell lysate (lane 3) were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with anti-Ago2 antibody (1:5,000 dilution).
Proteins were visualized using goat anti-mouse secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and chemiluminescence detection.

RNA Binding Protein (RBP)

This RIPAb+ Ago2 -RIP Validated Antibody & Primer Set conveniently includes the antibody & the specific control PCR primers.

General description

Ago2 (argonaute-2), also known as eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2C (EIF2C2), is an essential component for siRNA-directed RNA interference (RNAi) response. Ago2 is an endonuclease required for the unwinding of siRNA duplex and assembly of siRNA into RNA-induced silencing complexes (RISC). Ago2 interacts with DICER1 through its Piwi domain. This Piwi domain is thought to provide RNA cleavage activity via a mechanism similar to RNase H. Ago2 activity is necessary for embryonic development as well as RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi).

RIPAb+ antibodies are evaluated using the RNA Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation (RIP) assay. Each RIPAb+ antibody set includes a negative control antibody to ensure specificity of the RIP reaction and is verified for the co-immunoprecipitation of RNA associated specifically with the immunoprecipitated RNA binding protein of interest. Where appropriate, the RIPAb+ set also includes quantitative RT-PCR control primers (RIP Primers) to biologically validate your IP results by successfully co-precipitating the specific RNA targets, such as messenger RNAs. The qPCR protocol and primer sequences are provided, allowing researchers to validate RIP protocols when using the antibody in their experimental context. If a target specific assay is not provided, the RIPAb+ kit is validated using an automated microfluidics-based assay by enrichment of detectable RNA over control immunoprecipitation.
