    See all EGFR primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to EGFR
  • Specificityab15669 specifically detects EGFR protein in WB and IHC-Fr in mouse brain. In WB, ab15669 detects a larger MW band (200kDa) than predicted (134kDa); this is likely to be the glycosylated form of EGFR protein.
  • Tested applicationsWB, IHC-Frmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide derived from residues 350 - 450 of Mouse EGFR.


  • Positive control
    • This antibody gave a positive signal in Mouse Brain Tissue

Anti-EGFR antibody images

  • ab15669 EGFR antibody staining in E17 mouse cerebral cortex (5ug/ml). E17 mouse embryos were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde in PB overnight at 4°C then transferred to 30% sucrose in PBS. Brains were frozen in TissueTek and stored -80°C. Cryostat coronal sections were cut at 12um. Sections were blocked in 0.1% triton in PBS containing 10% normal serum from the species that secondary antibody was generated from. Primary antibodies were incubated on the sections at 4°C overnight. Secondary antibodies were incubated for 2 hours at RT. Images were taken using a Zeiss camera under 40X objectives
  • All lanes : Anti-EGFR antibody (ab15669) at 2 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : mouse brain lysate
    Lane 2 : mouse brain lysate with Mouse EGFR peptide (ab15739) at 1 µg/ml

    Alexa Fluor Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG at 0.1 µg/ml

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 134 kDa
    Observed band size : 200 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 50 kDa (possible IgG).

Thank you for your reply.

I appreciate the time that you took to try and optimize the protocol using ab2430. I am sorry to learn that this different fixation did not improve the staining.

As requested, I have issued a free of charge...
