Western blot analysis was performed on whole cell extracts (30 ug lysate) of MCF-7 (Lane 1), HeLa (Lane 2) and U-87 MG (lane 3). The blots were probed with ABfinity™ Rabbit Monoclonal Anti-DISC1 Antibody (Product# 701172, 1-2 ug/ml) and detected by chemiluminescence using Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, HRP conjugate (Product # A27036, 0.4 ug/ml, 1:2500 dilution). A 91 kDa band corresponding to DISC1 was observed across cell lines tested. Known quantity of protein samples were electrophoresed using Novex® NuPAGE® 4-12 % Bis-Tris gel (Product # NP0321BOX), XCell SureLock™ Electrophoresis System (Product # EI0002) and Novex® Sharp Pre-Stained Protein Standard (Product # LC5800). Resolved proteins were then transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane with iBlot® 2 Dry Blotting System (Product # IB21001). The membrane was probed with the relevant primary and secondary Antibody following blocking with 5 % skimmed milk. Chemiluminescent detection was performed using Novex® ECL Chemiluminescent Substrate Reagent Kit (Product # WP20005).

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale, and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
DISC1 (Disrupted in Schizophrenia 1) is a multifunctional protein that interacts with multiple proteins of the centrosome and cytoskeletal system, and is involved in neuronal functions that are dependent upon proper cytoskeletal regulation, including neuronal migration, neurite architecture and intracellular transport. Regions of the brain which express DISC1 include the hippocampus, lateral septum, amygdala, cerebral cortex, cerebellum and paraventricular hypothalamus, and loss of DISC1 function results in differences in structural organization.
