    Anti-EGFR antibody [EGFR1] images

    • ICC/IF image of ab30 stained HepG2 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 (ab30, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse 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.

    • Overlay histogram showing HEK293 cells stained with ab30 (red line). The cells were incubated with the antibody (ab30, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 4°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/200 dilution for 30 min at 4°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2b [PLPV219] (ab91366, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
      Please note that 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) or methanol (5 min) fixation prior to antibody staining significantly decreased signal.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Rabbit monoclonals typically have 10-100x the affinity of mouse monoclonals, as such it is often the case that the concentration of a rabbit monoclonal will be lower than a mouse monoclonal. Ab52894 does not ha...

    I'm sorry to hear you are still having problems with the replacement of ab30, this must be very fustrating. I understand that my colleague Danielle has raised the possibility that "this antibody does not recognise recombinant EGFR. The epitope has bee...

    Thank you again for your patience. Regarding ab30, EGFR1 recognises the whole receptor protein rather than a truncated version. For ab5636, the synthetic peptide immunogen to produce the antibody is approximately 10 amino acid residues around EGFR [pY8...
