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.

eIF5A (D8L8Q) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total eIF5A protein.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp104 of human eIF5A protein.
Eukaryotic initiation factor 5A (eIF5A) is an mRNA-binding protein that is involved in translation elongation and plays an important role in promoting translation of polyproline motifs (1-4). The eIF5A (eIF5A1) and eIF5A2 genes encode the two vertebrate eIF5A isoforms. While eIF5A1 is expressed constitutively in all tissues, eIF5A2 is mainly expressed in gonads. eIF5A and eIF5A2 are the only identified proteins that contain the distinctive amino acid hypusine, which is generated posttranslationally from lysine through a highly conserved polyamine metabolism pathway. eIF5A function and hypusine modification are both essential for cell proliferation, as knock down of eIF5A expression or blocking eIF5A hypusine modification suppresses cancer cell proliferation (5-7). Interestingly, eIF5A is an identified component of a tumor suppressor network of the polyamine-hypusine axis. Co-suppression of both eIF5A and adenosylmethionine decarboxylase 1 (AMD1) promotes lymphomagenesis in mice, while heterozygous deletions of the corresponding AMD1 and eIF5A genes often occur together in human lymphomas (8).
