Immunofluorescent analysis of Dynein in U87-MG Cells. Cells were grown on chamber slides and fixed with formaldehyde prior to staining. Cells were probed without (control) or with a Dynein monoclonal antibody (Product # MA1-070) at a dilution of 1:20 overnight at 4 C, washed with PBS and incubated with a DyLight-488 conjugated secondary antibody (Product # 35503). Dynein staining (green), F-Actin staining with Phalloidin (red) and nuclei with DAPI (blue) is shown. Images were taken at 60X magnification.

MA1-070 detects two isoforms of the ~74 kDa polypetide of cytoplasmic dynein.
MA1-070 has been successfully used in Western blot immunofluorescence, and immunoprecipitation procedures. In Western blot analysis of HeLa cell lysate this antibody detects a ~74 kDa protein representing cytoplasmic dynein.
The MA1-070 immunogen is purified bovine brain cytoplasmic dynein.
The directed movement of membrane-bounded organelles is an important process for various cellular functions including membrane transport, secretion, and axonal transport. Cytoplasmic dynein, a ubiquitous minus end-directed microtubule-based motor protein, is believed to be responsible for the retrograde transport of membranous organelles from the synapse to the cell body in fast axonal transport. The cytoplasmic dynein complex is composed of two ~530 kDa heavy chains, and intermediate chains of ~74 kDa and ~53-59 kDa.
