Antibody Customer Review for Radixin Polyclonal Antibody (STJ95338)


Target information

Radixin is a cytoskeletal protein that is coded by the RSX gene in humans. It is part of the ERM protein family along with ezrin and moesin. It is thought to play a significant role in the binding of the barbed end of actin filaments to the plasma membrane. The Radixin antibody detects endogenous levels of the radixin protein.

1. HOW DID OUR ANTIBODY PERFORM? ANTIBODY CUSTOMER REVIEW: Radixin Antibody (STJ95338)
2. What was used? Primary antibody: STJ95338 Radixin Antibody Provider: St John’s Laboratory Dilution ratio: 1:100 Application: Immunohistochemistry Materials for validation: Skeletal muscle of human origin (kryo-section) Click for product data sheet PDF
3. What Was The Protocol? Treatment of Materials ? Cryo sections were cut into 6um pieces, and left overnight in -80¡ãC freezer. Protocol ? Primary antibody was incubated overnight at room temperature (23¡ãC). ? The sample was washed for 2 hours with multiple changes of PBS. ? Amplification occurred through NOVOLINK Leica microsystems, then the primary antibody was incubated for 1 hour. ? The sample was then washed again for 1 hour with at least 3 changes of PBS. ? The secondary antibody was incubated for 30 minutes and then washed for 2 hours using PBS with multiple changes. ? The sample was then stained for 2 minutes using DAB. ? The sample was counterstained for 3 seconds using Harris¡¯ haematoxylin and then washed with tap water for 2 minutes until blueing. ? The sample was then dehydrated and mounted in entellan.

5. What did the customer think? Antibody Specificity: Antibody RPPA Rating: Testing results were provided independently by A. Roos at Newcastle University. They stated ¡°The highly conserved radixin functions as molecular linker between the actin cytoskeleton and transmembrane receptors. Thus increased subsarcolemmal immunoreactivity in a proportion of myofibres is in accordance with this function and the predicted subcellular localization. Remarkably, expression seems to be fibre-type specific. We will perform further (co)staining to confirm this assumption. Moreover, full-length radixin is known to be able to localise to the nucleus. In this context, increased immunoreactivity in (pathological) centralized myonuclei might be a specific finding. Focal increase in degenerating myofibres is in accordance with our proteomic in vitro data. Antibody does not seem to generate a marked background.¡±
