DSHB Data Sheet

Catalog Fields

Antigen: huntingtin (specific for expanded polyQ by western blot)
Hybridoma Cells Available: Yes
Antigen Species: Human
Depositor: Patterson, P.H.
Isotype: MIgG2b
Antigen Sequence:
Host Species: mouse
Depositors Institution: California Institute of Technology
Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Human
Depositors Notes: MW1 is specific for the elongated polyQ stretch through which mHtt aggregates. The epitope is hidden in aggregates. This antibody is also known as anti-polyQ.

Human Protein Atlas:  
Predicted Species Reactivity:  
Gene: HTT
Immunogen: Recombinant DRPLA-19Q/GST fusion protein
Alternate Gene Names: HD, IT15
Alternate Antibody Name:
Clonality: Monoclonal
Alternate Antigen Name:
Epitope Mapped: Yes
Myeloma Strain: HL-1
Epitope Location or Sequence: N-terminal, polyQ
Uniprot ID: P42858 
Immunogen Sequence: Partial protein
Entrez Gene ID: 3064 
Additional Characterization:  
Antibody Registry ID: AB_528290 
Additional Information: Appears to recognize an altered conformation of the polyQ domain generated as the polyQ domain of Htt increases in length. Time-resolved Förster resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) assay has been developed using MW1 to assay soluble huntingtin. PMID: 22365609 23966247 23626768 23100324 22984513. RRID:AB_528290
Recommended Applications: ELISA, FACS, Function Blocking, Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot

Storage and Handling Recommendations
Although many cell products are maintained at 4°C for years without loss of activity, shelf-life at 4°C is highly variable. For immediate use, short term storage at 4°C up to two weeks is recommended. For long term storage, divide the solution into volumes of no less than 20 ul for freezing at -20°C or -80°C. The small volume aliquot should provide sufficient reagent for short term use. Freeze-thaw cycles should be avoided. For concentrate or bioreactor products, an equal volume of glycerol, a cryoprotectant, may be added prior to freezing.
Usage Recommendations
Although the optimal Ig concentration for an application varies for each product and must be optimized for each laboratory, a good starting concentration for immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunofluorescence (IF), and immunocytochemistry (ICC) is 2-5 ug/ml. For western blots, the recommended concentration range is 0.2-0.5 ug/ml.
