Perilipin-2/ADFP Antibody Summary

ADFP (aka adipophilin) can be found on the surface of lipid droplets in most mammalian cell types. ADFP is a major protein component of lipid storage droplets. Lipid droplet metabolism is likely controlled by the coat proteins of the perilipin family, which include ADFP, perilipin, TIP47, S3-12, and PAT-1. Perilipin family proteins localize to lipid droplets, either constitutively (perilipin, ADFP) or in response to lipogenic and/or lipolytic stimuli (TIP47, S3-12, and PAT-1).
A synthetic peptide made to a C-terminal region of mouse ADFP (within residues 350-425) [Swiss-Prot# P43883]

Application Notes
This ADFP antibody can be used for Western blot and Immunofluorescence/Immunocytochemistry. In Western blot a band is observed at approx. 51 kDa. In ICC/IF, membrane staining was observed in HeLa cells. In IHC-P, staining was observed on the membrane of mouse liver cells Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.

In Simple Western only 10 - 15 uL of the recommended dilution is used per data point. Separated by Size-Wes, Sally Sue/Peggy Sue.
The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
Theoretical MW
51 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

FAQs for Perilipin-2/ADFP Antibody (NB110-40877). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).

  1. I would appreciate if you are able to provide the exact amino acid sequence of the immunogens. The customer would like to check the percentage alignment with the chicken protein to determine which of the antiodies woudl be better to try in this species.
    • I am unable to provide you with this information however I can tell you that there is a 71% homology between the chicken protein and human protein. Our lab only recommends use if the homology is 85% or above.
  2. I went trought your product datasheet, but I didn't find any information about the dilution I have to use for the western blot and if it's in 5% milk-TBST or other blocking buffer. Could you please provide me those information?
    • For our product NB110-40877, we recommend a starting dilution of 2 ug/ml for western blot. Our recommended diluent buffer is 5% nonfat milk in TBST.
