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.

GFI1b (D3G2) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total GFI1b protein.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Tyr119 of human GFI1b protein.
GFI1b and its homolog GFI1 are transcriptional repressors and important regulators of erythroid and megakaryocytic development and differentiation (1,2). GFI1b negatively regulates transcription by recruiting chromatin regulatory proteins including CoREST, the histone demethylase LSD1 and HDACs 1 and 2, which associate with GFI1b via its SNAG repression domain (3). GFI1b has also been shown to control the differentiation of erythroid and megakaryocytic progenitors by regulating TGF-β signaling at the bipotent progenitor stage (4). Inactivation of GFI1b in mice leads to embryonic lethality due to failure to produce functional erythrocytes and megakaryocytes (2). The GFI1b gene locus can be autoregulated by binding to its own promoter in hematopoietic cells, likely through interacting with GATA-1, another transcription factor essential for erythroid and megakaryocytic development (5). Mutations in GFI1b are implicated in various leukemias (6) and GFI1b has been found in a complex with GATA-1 and SUZ12 on repressed genes in erythroleukemia cells (7).
