Antibody was affinity purified using an epitope specific to VCP immobilized on solid support. The epitope recognized by A300-588A maps to a region between residues 1 and 50 of human Valosin-Containing Protein using the numbering given in entry NP_009057.1 (GeneID 7415). Immunoglobulin concentration was determined by extinction coefficient: absorbance at 280 nm of 1.4 equals 1.0 mg of IgG.

Detection of human and mouse VCP by western blot. Samples: Whole cell lysate (50 µg) from HeLa, HEK293T, Jurkat, mouse TCMK-1, and mouse NIH 3T3 cells prepared using NETN lysis buffer. Antibody: Affinity purified rabbit anti-VCP antibody A300-588A (lot A300-588A-2) used for WB at 0.1 µg/ml. Detection: Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 10 seconds.
Detection of human VCP by western blot of immunoprecipitates. Samples: Whole cell lysate (1.0 mg per IP reaction; 20% of IP loaded) from HeLa cells prepared using NETN lysis buffer. Antibodies: Affinity purified rabbit anti-VCP antibody A300-588A (lot A300-588A-2) used for IP at 3 µg per reaction. VCP was also immunoprecipitated by rabbit anti-VCP antibody A300-589A. For blotting immunoprecipitated VCP, A300-588A was used at 1 µg/ml. Detection: Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 30 seconds.
