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.
IGF2BP2 (Insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA-binding protein 2) is a member of the IGF-II mRNA-binding protein family that post-transcriptionally regulates IGF2 during developmental stages. IGF2BP1, 2, and 3 bind the UTR region of IGF2 transcripts, and are implicated in the transport of RNA targets, to enable protein synthesis at specific locations in the cytoplasm. Research has shown that the IGF2 gene may be involved in ovarian cancer.

Western Blot Analysis:
Representative lot data.
HepG2 cell lysate was probed with Anti-IGF2BP2, clone 5E10-3E1 (1:20,000 dilution).
Proteins were visualized using a Goat Anti-Mouse IgG secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Arrow indicates IGF2BP2 (~66 kDa).
Note: An uncharacterized band appears at ~50 kDa in some lysates.

10 assays per set. Recommended use: 1.25 μg of antibody per RIP (dependent upon biological context).


RNA Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation:
Representative lot data
RIP Lysate prepared from 293 cells (2 X 10E7 cell equivalents per IP) were subjected to immunoprecipitation using 1.25 µg of either a normal mouse IgG or 1.25 µg Anti-IGF2BP2 antibody and the Magna RIP® RNA-Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation Kit (Cat. # 17-700).
Successful immunoprecipitation of IGF2BP2-associated RNA was verified by qPCR using RIP Primers IGF2, (Figure 1).
Please refer to the Magna RIP (Cat. # 17-700) or EZ-Magna RIP (Cat. # 17-701) protocol for experimental details.
