Achieve higher quality immunofluorescent images using the efficient and cost-effective, pre-made reagents in our #12727 Immunofluorescence Application Solutions Kit
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Recommended Fluorochrome-conjugated Anti-Rabbit secondary antibodies:
NOTE: Cells should be grown, treated, fixed and stained directly in multi-well plates, chamber slides or on coverslips.
Aspirate liquid, then cover cells to a depth of 2–3 mm with 4% formaldehyde diluted in 1X PBS.
NOTE: Formaldehyde is toxic, use only in a fume hood.
NOTE: All subsequent incubations should be carried out at room temperature unless otherwise noted in a humid light-tight box or covered dish/plate to prevent drying and fluorochrome fading.

Protocol Id: 24
Fibrillarin (R122) Antibody (IF Specific) detects endogenous levels of total fibrillarin protein by immunofluoresence (immunocytochemistry).Species Reactivity:
MonkeySpecies predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology:
Human, Mouse, Rat
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Arg122 of human fibrillarin. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Fibrillarin is a 2'-O-methyltransferase located in fibrillar regions and Cajal bodies of the nucleolus, where RNA transcription and pre-RNA processing take place (1,2). Fibrillarin associates with several other structural proteins as well as box C/D snoRNA to form a complex that functions in pre-rRNA processing, pre-rRNA methylation, and ribosome assembly. This complex catalyzes site-specific 2'-O-ribose methylation of targeted nucleotides within the rRNA sequence (3,4). The sequence, structure, and function of fibrillarin are highly conserved and fibrillarin gene expression is essential for early embryonic development (5).
