Characterization of anti-Scrib antibodies. (A) Total cell extracts were prepared from the following cell lines: human embryonic kidney epithelial cells (293) (lane 1), dog normal kidney epithelial cells (MDCK) (lane 2), human T lymphocytes (Jurkat) (lane 3), and African green monkey kidney fibroblast cells (CV-1) (lane 4). Approximately 30 μg of protein from each extract was analysed by SDS-PAGE and Western blotting with the Scrib-472 antibodies. The position of molecular markers are as shown. (B) Total cell extracts of 293T cells, either not transfected (lane 2), or transiently transfected with Xpress-hScrib that is composed of the full length human Scrib protein fused to an Xpress-epitope-tag at its amino-terminus (lanes 1 and 3) were analyzed by SDS-PAGE and Western blotting with an anti-Xpress antibody (lane 1) or with the Scrib-472 antibody (lanes 2 and 3). The position of molecular markers are as shown. (C) MDCKII cells, grown on glass coverslips, were fixed and stained with Scrib-472-antibodies. Immunofluorescence was visualized by epifluorescence microscopy.
