The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB 1/200. Predicted molecular weight: 16 kDa.
Sandwich ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Mouse monoclonal [DCS50.1] to CDKN2A/p16INK4a (ab16123). For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Detection at 0.5 µg/ml with Mouse monoclonal [DCS50.1] to CDKN2A/p16INK4a (ab16123) as Capture.

  • Standard Curve for CDKN2A/p16INK4a (Analyte: CDKN2A/p16INK4a protein (Human) (ab84075)); dilution range 1pg/ml to 1µg/ml using Capture Antibody Mouse monoclonal [DCS50.1] to CDKN2A/p16INK4a (ab16123) at 1µg/ml and Detector Antibody Rabbit polyclonal to CDKN2A/p16INK4a (ab7962) at 0.5µg/ml.
  • ICC/IF image of ab7962 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab7962, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Thank you for contacting us. Please find attached the IHC-P protocol and image you requested. DAB was used in IHC-P. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

As promised, here is the response from the originator of this antibody: "I have looked at our WB for ab7962and while I do see a protein around 35 kD (more like 32kD), I still am getting a band at 16 kD in the HeLa lysates. I would say that they are ...
