Following IP of cell lysates with a FLAG antibody, blots were probed for (A) AR-NTD or (B) AR-V7 to determine the specificity of the EP343 antibody. (C) Immunoblot staining of various prostate cancer cell lines, both positive and negative for AR-V7 and AR-FL, shows AR-V7 staining (top arrow) along with a number of nonspecific bands and AR-FL (bottom arrow). (D) LNCaP95s were transfected with siRNAs targeting either cryptic exon 3B (si V7), exon 7 (si ex7), exon 1 (si ex1), scrambled SiRNA (si SCR), or an input control. Note that siRNAs directed at components of AR-V7 (si V7 and si ex 1) reduced EP343 staining, but siRNA directed at exon 7 had no effect. (E) IHC on 22Rv1 (positive for AR-NTD and AR-V7), DU145 (negative for AR-NTD and AR-V7) and PC3s which are negative for AR-NTD and should be negative for AR-V7 but have obvious EP343 staining. Both PC3 and 22Rv1 were transfected w ith AR-V7 (cryptic exon 3B) siRNA and then pelleted for EP343 IHC staining. The targeted siRNA reduced AR-V7 in 22Rv1 IHC but not in PC3.
