Human Cystatin B Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human
Specificity
Detects human Cystatin B in Western blots and direct ELISAs. In Western blots, less than 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Cystatins A and S, recombinant mouse Cystatin B, rhFetuin A, and rhHPRG (Histidine-Proline-Rich Glycoprotein) is observed and approximately 5% to 10% cross-reactivity with rhCystatins C, D, E/M, SA, SN, and rhFetuin B is observed.

Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
Western Blot
2 µg/mL
See below
Immunoprecipitation
25 µg/mL
Conditioned cell culture medium spiked with Recombinant Human Cystatin B (Catalog # 1408-PI), see our available Western blot detection antibodies
Knockout Validated
Cystatin B is specifically detected in HEK293T human embryonic kidney parental cell line but is not detectable in Cystatin B knockout HEK293T cell line.
 
Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize Recombinant Human Cystatin B (0.53 µg/mL, Catalog # 1408-PI) inhibition of Papain (0.1 µg/mL) cleavage of the fluorogenic peptide substrate Z-FR-AMC (100 µM, Catalog # ES009). The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 5.4 µg/mL.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human Cystatin B antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Cystatin B by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human colon tissue, SK-BR-3 human breast cancer cell line, and A549 human lung carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Cystatin B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1408) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Cystatin B at approximately 12 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Neutralization Neutralization of Cystatin B Activity by Human Cystatin B Antibody. View Larger

Neutralization of Cystatin B Activity by Human Cystatin B Antibody. Papain (0.1 µg/mL) activity is measured in the presence of Recombinant Human Cystatin B (0.53 µg/mL, Catalog # 1408-PI) that has been preincubated with increasing concentrations of Human Cystatin B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1408). The ND50 is typically 5.4 µg/mL.

Knockout Validated Western Blot Shows Human Cystatin B Antibody Specificity by Using Knockout Cell Line. View Larger

Western Blot Shows Human Cystatin B Specificity by Using Knockout Cell Line. Western blot shows lysates of HEK293T human embryonic kidney parental cell line and Cystatin B knockout HEK293T cell line (KO). PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Cystatin B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1408) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Cystatin B at approximately 12 kDa (as indicated) in the parental HEK293T cell line, but is not detectable in knockout HEK293T cell line. GAPDH (Catalog # MAB5718) is shown as a loading control. This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Cystatin B

Cystatin B, also called stefin B or liver thiol proteinase inhibitor, is a member of family 1 of the cystatin superfamily (1). Like Cystatin A, it is an intracellular inhibitor regulating the activities of cysteine proteases of the papain family such as cathepsins B, H and L (2). Mutations in the Cystatin B gene is the cause of progressive myoclonus epilepsy (EPM1) (3). Because of its expression patterns, Cystatin B can be used as a marker for certain cancers, such as glioblastoma tumors (4). It readily forms amyloid fibrils in vitro (5). The human Cystatin B consists of 98 amino acid residues (3).
