B. Protein Blotting

A general protocol for sample preparation.

  1. Treat cells by adding fresh media containing regulator for desired time.
  2. Aspirate media from cultures; wash cells with 1X PBS; aspirate.
  3. Lyse cells by adding 1X SDS sample buffer (100 µl per well of 6-well plate or 500 µl for a 10 cm diameter plate). Immediately scrape the cells off the plate and transfer the extract to a microcentrifuge tube. Keep on ice.
  4. Sonicate for 10–15 sec to complete cell lysis and shear DNA (to reduce sample viscosity).
  5. Heat a 20 µl sample to 95–100°C for 5 min; cool on ice.
  6. Microcentrifuge for 5 min.
  7. Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).

    NOTE: Loading of prestained molecular weight markers (#13953, 5 µl/lane) to verify electrotransfer and biotinylated protein ladder (#7727, 10 µl/lane) to determine molecular weights are recommended.

  8. Electrotransfer to nitrocellulose membrane (#12369).

C. Membrane Blocking and Antibody Incubations

NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.

I. Membrane Blocking

  1. (Optional) After transfer, wash nitrocellulose membrane with 25 ml TBS for 5 min at room temperature.
  2. Incubate membrane in 25 ml of blocking buffer for 1 hr at room temperature.
  3. Wash three times for 5 min each with 15 ml of TBST.

II. Primary Antibody Incubation

  1. Incubate membrane and primary antibody (at the appropriate dilution and diluent as recommended in the product webpage) in 10 ml primary antibody dilution buffer with gentle agitation overnight at 4°C.
  2. Wash three times for 5 min each with 15 ml of TBST.
  3. Incubate membrane with Anti-rabbit IgG, HRP-linked Antibody (#7074 at 1:2000) and anti-biotin, HRP-linked Antibody (#7075 at 1:1000–1:3000) to detect biotinylated protein markers in 10 ml of blocking buffer with gentle agitation for 1 hr at room temperature.
  4. Wash three times for 5 min each with 15 ml of TBST.
  5. Proceed with detection (Section D).

D. Detection of Proteins

Directions for Use:

  1. Wash membrane-bound HRP (antibody conjugate) three times for 5 minutes in TBST.
  2. Prepare 1X SignalFire™ ECL Reagent (#6883) by diluting one part 2X Reagent A and one part 2X Reagent B (e.g. for 10 ml, add 5 ml Reagent A and 5 ml Reagent B). Mix well.
  3. Incubate substrate with membrane for 1 minute, remove excess solution (membrane remains wet), wrap in plastic and expose to X-ray film.

* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Source / Purification

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to a region surrounding Lys296 of human p190-B RhoGAP. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.


Rho family GTPases are key regulators of diverse processes such as cytoskeletal organization, cell growth and differentiation, transcriptional regulation, and cell adhesion/motility. The activities of these proteins are controlled primarily through guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) that facilitate the exchange of GDP for GTP, promoting the active (GTP-bound) state, and GTPase activating proteins (GAPs) that promote GTP hydrolysis and the inactive (GDP-bound) state (1,2).

The p190 RhoGAP proteins are widely expressed Rho family GAPs. p190-A has been characterized as a tumor suppressor, and research studies have shown that loss or rearrangement of the chromosomal region containing the gene for p190-A is linked to tumor development (3,4). p190-A binds the mitogen-inducible transcription factor TFII-I, sequestering it in the cytoplasm and inhibiting its activity. Phosphorylation of p190-A at Tyr308 reduces its affinity for TFII-I, relieving the inhibition (5). p190-A can also inhibit growth factor-induced gliomas in mice (6) and affect cleavage furrow formation and cytokinesis in cultured cells (7).

Mice lacking p190-B RhoGAP show excessive Rho activation and a reduction in activation of the transcription factor CREB (8). Cells deficient in p190-B display defective adipogenesis (9). There is increasing evidence that p190 undergoes tyrosine phosphorylation, which activates its GAP domain (9-11). Levels of tyrosine phosphorylation are enhanced by Src overexpression (10,11). IGF-I treatment downregulates Rho through phosphorylation and activation of p190-B RhoGAP, thereby enhancing IGF signaling implicated in adipogenesis (9).
