Immunofluorescence analysis of DISC1 was done on 70% confluent log phase SH-SY5Y cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 minutes; permeabilized with 0.25% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes followed by blocking with 5% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were incubated with ABfinity™ DISC1 Recombinant Rabbit Oligoclonal Antibody (710203) at 2 µg-4 µg in 1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Alexa Flour® 488 Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (A11008) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 594 Phalloidin (A12381). Panel d is a merged image showing cytoplasmic localization of DISC1. Panel e shows no primary antibody control. The images were captured at 20X magnification.

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™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
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.
