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.

USP39 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total USP39 protein.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val88 of human USP39 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Ubiquitin specific protease 39 (USP39) is a 65 kDa protein that plays an important role in pre-mRNA splicing, as well as mitotic spindle formation. It displays significant homology with ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase proteins (UCHs), containing both an N-terminal zinc finger domain as well as UCH-1 and UCH-2-like domains also observed in the UCH2 family of proteins (1). However, USP39 lacks a catalytic cysteine residue found in UCHs and has been shown experimentally to lack peptidase activity (2). USP39 associates with the U4/U6-U5 tri-small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP) complex and is necessary for the formation of the mature spliceosome. Silencing of USP39 has been shown to adversely affect chromosome segregation and cytokinesis in U2OS cells, likely due to improper splicing of Aurora B and other mRNAs necessary for mitotic spindle formation and checkpoint function (2). In addition, USP39 has been found to be overexpressed in many types of cancers, and in most cases is associated with tumor progression and poor prognosis. Overexpression has been observed in pancreatic (3), prostate (4), colorectal (5,6), lung (6,7), gastric (8), and triple negative breast cancers (9), as well as melanoma (10) and hepatocellular carcinoma (11,12).
