Immunofluorescence using Rockland's affinity purified goat anti Bmi1 shows nuclear staining (green) of methanol fixed (100%, 5 min) HepG2 cells. The cells were blocked and permeabilized in 1%BSA / 10% normal donkey serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h prior to incubation with the primary antibody (1:200 dilution) overnight at +4°C and detected with a 488nm fluorescent dye conjugated secondary Ab. Cell nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue) and plasma membranes are stained with WGA (red).

BMI1 Antibody Description

Background
The Bmi-1 oncogene (also known as polycomb group ring finger 4, MGC12685, murine leukemia viral (bmi 1) oncogene homolog, oncogene BMI 1, polycomb complex protein BMI 1 and RNF51) induces telomerase activity and immortalizes human mammary epithelial cells. Bmi-1 extends the replicative life span of human fibroblasts by suppressing the p16-dependent senescence pathway.  The polycomb group (PcG) genes are involved in the maintenance of cellular memory through epigenetic chromatin modifications. Recent studies have implicated a role for PcG genes in the self-renewal of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), a process in which cellular memory is maintained through cell division. Among the PcG genes, Bmi-1 plays a central role in the inheritance of stemness, and its forced expression promotes HSC self-renewal. These findings highlight the importance of epigenetic regulation in HSC self-renewal and identify PcG genes as potential targets for therapeutic HSC manipulation.

Immunogen
This affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole goat serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 252-264 of human Bmi1 protein.
Immunogen Type
Peptide
Storage Condition
Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
This affinity purified antibody has been tested for use in ELISA and western blot.  A 1:200 dilution is reported to be effective for Immunofluorescence against Methanol fixed cells. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band approximately 37 kDa in size corresponding to Bmi1 by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
Purity/Specifity
This affinity purified antibody is directed against human Bmi1 protein. The product was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity purification.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross reactivity with Bmi1 protein from human, rat, orangutan, dog, chimpanzee, bovine and cat based on 100% homology to the immunogen sequence.  This sequence shows significant homology to homologues from Xenopus and chicken sources.  Reactivity against homologues from other sources is not known.
