For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v nonfat dry milk, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody datasheet or product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

MACC1 (D2K7V) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total MACC1 protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro442 of human MACC1 protein.
The gene encoding metastasis-associated in colon cancer-1 (MACC1) was identified based on its overexpression in metastatic colon carcinoma (1), and was later shown to be overexpressed in multiple human cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma, gastric cancer, head and neck cancer, and breast cancer (2-5). MACC1 regulates HGF/MET and β-catenin signaling, resulting in increased proliferation, migration and invasion, and initiation of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) (2). Researchers have shown that MACC1 can be used as a prognostic indicator in solid tumors, and that it has potential as a therapeutic target (6).
