Imunofluorescent analysis of Lin28 (red) in Human episomal iPSC cells. The cells were fixed with formalin for 15 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes, and blocked with 3% Blocker BSA (Product # 37525) for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were stained with Dylight 650-conjugated Lin28 monoclonal antibody (right, Product # MA1-016-D650) or Dylight 650-conjugated Mouse IgG2a isotype control antibody (left, Product # MA1-193-D650), at a dilution of 1:50 and incubated for 1 hour at room temperature. Nuclei (both panels, blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product # 62249). Images were taken at 20X magnification.

MA1-016-D650 has been successfully used in ICC/IF and flow cytometry applications on human and mouse samples.
MA1-016-D650 can be used for immunofluorescence analysis of LIN28 in human iPSCs.
LIN28A/B are expressed in various cancers and ES cells. LIN28 is a cytoplasmic protein, that acts as a 'translational enhancer', driving specific mRNAs to polysomes and thus increasing the efficiency of protein synthesis. LIN28 is a negative regulator of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis by specifically binding the precursor of let-7 (pre-let-7). Let-7 miRNAs have been implicated in repression of oncogenes such as ras and myc. LIN28 expression decreases during differentiation of ES cells or upon induction of neuronal differentiation by retinoic acid.
