W19087A_PURE_AGR2_Antibody_1_111320
Whole cell extracts (15 µg total protein) from HeLa (negative control), A549 (low expressor positive control), and MCF7 (high expressor positive control) lysates were resolved by 4-12% Bis-Tris gel electrophoresis, transferred to a PVDF membrane, and probed with 2.0 µg/mL (1:250 dilution) purified anti-AGR2 antibody (clone W19087A) overnight at 4°C. Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using HRP goat anti-rat IgG antibody (Cat. No. 405405) at a 1:3000 dilution. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-GAPDH antibody (Cat. No. 607904) was used as a loading control at a 1:25000 dilution (lower). Lane M: Molecular weight marker. Predicted AGR2 expression was obtained from Human Protein Atlas.

    HeLa cells (negative control, panel A) and A549 cells (positive control, panel B) were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with Triton X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 5% FBS for 60 minutes. Cells were then intracellularly stained with 2.0 µg/mL purified anti-AGR2 antibody (clone W19087A) overnight at 4°C followed by incubation with Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-rat IgG antibody (Cat. No. 405422) at 2.0 µg/mL. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and the image was captured with a 60X objective.
  • W19087A_PURE_AGR2_Antibody_3_111320
    Whole cell extracts (250 µg total protein) prepared from MCF7 cells were immunoprecipitated overnight with 2.5 µg of purified rat IgG2a, κ isotype ctrl antibody (Cat. No. 400501) or purified anti-AGR2 antibody (clone W19087A). The resulting IP fractions and whole cell extract input (6%) were resolved by 4-12% Bis-Tris gel electrophoresis, transferred to a PVDF membrane and probed with a rabbit control antibody against a separate epitope of AGR2.

Description

AGR2 is a disulfide isomerase that catalyzes protein folding and thiol-disulfide exchange reactions in the ER lumen. It can also serve as a chaperone for secretory proteins, and is essential for maturation of cysteine-rich transmembrane receptors, including the intestinal glycoprotein mucin. In addition to its role in ER homeostasis, AGR2 can also exert pro-oncogenic function. In many tumors, AGR2 is overexpressed and secreted into the tumor microenvironment, where it disrupts epithelial cell to cell adhesion, promotes invasive structures, and mediates loss of cell polarity. AGR2 is highly upregulated in tamoxifen-treated cells and plays a crucial role in mediating resistance to chemotherapeutic agents.

Application

WB - Quality tested
ICC, IP - Verified

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by western blotting. For western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.1 - 2.0 µg/mL. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 μg/mL is recommended. For immunoprecipitation, the suggested use of this reagent is 2.5 µg/test. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

This clone was tested for ICC on A549 cells fixed with 4% PFA and permeabilized with either Triton X-100 or methanol. While both methods were compatible with AGR2 staining, a significantly stronger signal was attained with Triton X-100 permeabilization.

AGR2 staining was highly variable in A549 cells, with many cells lacking any detectable signal. This result was consistent with internal data generated with an anti-AGR2 control antibody.
