|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||97214 Da|
|Antigen Region||27-56 aa|
|Other Names||Protein argonaute-1, Argonaute1, hAgo1, Argonaute RISC catalytic component 1, Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2C 1, eIF-2C 1, eIF2C 1, Putative RNA-binding protein Q99, AGO1, EIF2C1|
|Target/Specificity||This AGO1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 27-56 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human AGO1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||AGO1 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi). Binds to short RNAs such as microRNAs (miRNAs) or short interfering RNAs (siRNAs), and represses the translation of mRNAs which are complementary to them. Lacks endonuclease activity and does not appear to cleave target mRNAs. Also required for transcriptional gene silencing (TGS) of promoter regions which are complementary to bound short antigene RNAs (agRNAs).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, P-body|

AGO1 is a member of the Argonaute family of proteins which play a role in RNA interference. The protein is highly basic, and contains a PAZ domain and a PIWI domain. It may interact with dicer1 and play a role in short-interfering-RNA-mediated gene silencing.
