Detection of Human and Rat GOLGB1/Giantin by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line, SK‑OV‑3 human ovarian adenocarcinoma cell line, ZR‑75 human breast cancer cell line, and Rat‑2 rat embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Rat GOLGB1/Giantin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8159) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for GOLGB1/Giantin at approximately 370 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
GOLGB1/Giantin in HeLa Human Cell Line.
GOLGB1/Giantin was detected in 2% paraformaldehyde immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Sheep Anti-Human/Rat GOLGB1/Giantin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8159) at 1.7 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to Golgi apparatus vesicles. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

GOLGB1, also known as Giantin and Macrogolgin, is a 360 to 400 kDa member of the Golgin protein family. GOLGB1 is an integral component of the Golgi membrane that associates with the cytoskeleton. It may be involved in both forming intercisternal cross-bridges that mediate stacking in Golgi complexes, and in reorganizing the complexes after they fragment during mitosis. GOLGB1 has also been identified as an autoantigen in chronic rheumatoid arthritis, and in the autoimmune disease Sjoegren syndrome. Human GOLGB1 is 3259 amino acids (aa) in length, and over aa 1596-1702, shares 92% and 91% sequence identity with its mouse and rat orthologs, respectively.
