Immunofluorescence analysis of IRS1 was done on 70% confluent log phase T-47D cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 minutes, permeabilized with 0.25% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 5% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with IRS1 Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (PA11059) at 1ug/ml in 1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate (Product # A27034) at a dilution of 1:2000 for 45 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® 555 Rhodamine Phalloidin (Product # R415, 1:300). Panel d is a merged image showing Nuclear localization. Panel e is a no primary antibody control. The images were captured at 60X magnification.

PA1-1059 detects IRS-1 in mouse and human cells.
PA1-1059 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a ~170 kDa protein representing IRS-1 from 3T3 L1 cell extract.
The PA1-1059 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues D(631) Y M P M S P K S V S A P Q Q I(646) of human IRS-1. The peptide sequence is 100% conservation in rats, and mice. This peptide (Cat. # PEP-193) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Insulin receptor substrates (IRS) are responsible for several insulin related activities, such as glucose homeostasis, cell growth, cell transformation, apoptosis and insulin signal transduction. Serine/threonine phosphorylation of IRS-1 has been demonstrated to be a negative regulator of insulin signaling and is responsible for its degradation, although IRS-1 degradation pathways are not well understood. IRS-1 has also been shown to be constitutively activated in cancers such as breast cancer, Wilm and quote;s tumors, and adrenal cortical carcinomas, thus making IRS-1 phosphorylation and subsequent degradation an attractive therapeutic option. To date there have been four subtypes identified: IRS-1,2,3, and 4, with IRS-1 being widely expressed.
IP-MS enrichment of IRS1 (LFQ intensity): IRS1 was enriched 44-fold from HCT116 lysate compared to background proteins, using the optimized IP-MS workflow with Pierce MS-Compatible Magnetic IP Kit protein A/G (Part No. 90409) and IRS1 antibody (Part No. PA1-1059). See more information on IP-MS verification of antibody selectivity. IP-MS validation info.
