General description

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.
PUM1 has been shown to bind an mRNA sequence known as Nanos response element. It is found in heart, brain, muscle, kidney, stomach and intestine. PUM proteins play an active role in the sustainability of mitotic stem cell proliferation and the regulation of cell development and differentiation.

Within the mammalian genome are two genes belonging to a family of housekeeping genes known as PUF. These genes are known as PUM1 and PUM2. PUF proteins are characterized by having a C-terminal RNA-binding domain called the Pumilio homolog domain, which affects the stability of mRNA and translation by binding the 3’-UTR of mRNA targets. PUM plays an active role in the sustainability of mitotic stem cell proliferation and the regulation of cell development and differentiation. Very little has been discovered about the specific role for PUM1. However it has been shown to bind an mRNA sequence known as Nanos response element and to interact with RNA. PUM1 is found in heart, brain, muscle, kidney, stomach and intestine. It is not expressed in putamen, hippocampus, medulla oblangata, corpus collasum, cerebellum and caudate nucleus.

Western Blot Analysis:
Representative lot data.
H9 human stem cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to PVDF membranes and probed with Anti-Pumilio-1 (PUM1) (1:5,000 dilution).
Proteins were visualized using a Donkey Anti-Rabbit IgG conjugated to HRP and chemiluminescence detection system.
Arrow indicates Pumilio-1 (~120 kDa).
Immunocytochemistry Analysis:
Representative lot data.
Confocal fluorescent analysis of mouse and human embryonic stem cells using Anti-Pumilio-1 (PUM1) (Red). Actin filaments have been labeled with Alexa Fluor® 488 dye - Phalloidin (Green). Nucleus is stained with DAPI (Blue). This antibody positively stains the cytosol.

10 assays per set. Recommended use: ~2.5 µg (7.2 µL) of antibody per RIP (dependent upon biological context).


RNA Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation:
Representative lot data.
RIP Lysate prepared from HeLa cells (2 X 10E7 cell equivalents per IP) were subjected to immunoprecipitation using 2.5 µg of either a normal Rabbit IgG or 2.5 µg Anti-PUM1 antibodyand the Magna RIP® RNA-Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation Kit (Cat. # 17-700). Successful immunoprecipitation of PUM1-associated RNA was verified by qPCR using RIP Primers p27 mRNA, (Figure 1).
