      DescriptionRIPAb+ Musashi 2 - RIP Validated Antibody and Primer Set, rabbit monoclonal
      OverviewRIPAb+ 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.
      Alternate Names

      • musashi homolog 2 (Drosophila)
      Background InformationIn mammals, the Musashi family is important for cell fate determination, playing roles in maintenance of the stem-cell state, differentiation and tumorigenesis. MSI2 or Musashi2 is a member of an RNA-binding protein family that appears to play a central role in post transcriptional gene regulation. The MSI2 gene encodes a protein containing two conserved tandem RNA recognition motifs. MSI2 may have a unique role that is required for the generation and/or maintenance of specific neuronal lineages.

      Key Applications
      • RNA Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation (RIP)
      • Western Blotting
      • Flow Cytometry
      • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
      Application NotesImmunoprecipitation from RIP lysate:
      Representative lot data.
      RIP lysate from SHSH-5Y cells (2 X 10E6 cell equivalents per IP) was subjected to immunoprecipitation using 0.5 µL of either a normal rabbit IgG or 0.5 µL of Anti-Musashi 2 antibody.
      Precipitated proteins (lane 1: rabbit IgG, lane 2: anti-Musashi 2) and SHSH-5Y whole cell lysate (lane 3) were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with anti-Musashi 2 antibody (1:2,000 dilution). Proteins were visualized using One-Step™ IP-Western kit.
      Arrow indicates Musashi 2 (Please see figures).

      Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis:
      Representative lot data.
      A previous lot was used in immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded human placenta tissue using 1:100-1:250 dilution of anti-Musashi 2 (Please see figures).

      Western Blot Analysis:
      Representative lot data.
      A 1:1,000-2,000 dilution of a previous lot of this antibody was used to detect Musashi 2 in human brain (A), rat brain (B), SW480 (C), and T47D (D) cell lysates (Please see figures).

      Flow Cytometry: A 1:30 dilution of a previous lot was used in flow cytometry.
