Overview

  • Product name
    Anti-6X His tag® antibody - ChIP Grade
    See all 6X His tag® primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to 6X His tag® - ChIP Grade
  • Specificity
    ELISA: Antibody specificity was verified by ELISA against peptide conjugated to BSA (HHHHHH-BSA). A 1:25,000 dilution of the antibody gave an OD=1.0 in a 15 minute reaction using HRP-conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit IgG at 1:20,000 and TMB as the substrate. Appropriate specificity controls were run.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: IP, WB, IHC-P, ICC/IF, ELISA, ChIP, Flow Cytmore details
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide: HHHHHH conjugated to KLH.

  • Positive control
  • General notes
    This antibody recognizes both C-terminal and N-terminal tags. HIS-TAG® is a trademark of EMD Biosciences, Inc.

Target

  • Relevance
    The H-H-H-H-H-H motif is used as a tag on many recombinant proteins to facilitate purification. The antibody recognizes the His-tag fused to the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins in transfected or transformed cells.
  • Cellular localization
    Depends upon the localization of the parent protein tagged with hexahistidine.
  • Alternative names
    • 6 His epitope tag antibody
    • Hexa His tag antibody
    • HHHHHH epitope tag antibody
    • HHHHHH tag antibody
    • His tag antibody
    • Polyhistidine Tag antibody

Anti-6X His tag® antibody - ChIP Grade images

  • ab9108 staining CACNB3 with His tag expressed in HEK293 cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 20 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in 1% goat serum, 0.1% TX100 and PBS) for 16 hours at 4°C. An  Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody (1/750).

  • A stably transfected 293T human cell line harbouring the GAL4 upstream activation sequence was transiently transfected with a Myc or His - tagged GAL4 DNA Binding Domain construct. 48 hours post transfection Chromatin was prepared according to the Abcam X-ChIP protocol. The ChIP was performed with 25 ug chromatin, 5ug of antibody and 20 ul of Protein A/G beads. A non-specific antibody was used as the negative control. The immunoprecipitated DNA was quantified by real time PCR (SYBR Green approach).
