ab6640 staining F4/80 in Mouse skeletal muscle tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/ PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections). The sections were fixed in formaldehyde and subjected to Heat-mediated antigen retrieval in citrate buffer (pH 6.0) prior to blocking with 1% BSA for 25 minutes at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 in 1%BSA/PBS and incubated with the sample for 1 hour 30 minutes at 25°C. An HRP polymer-conjugated Goat anti-Rat polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
ab6640 staining mouse brain tissue sections by IHC-FoFr. Sections were PFA fixed and blocked with 0.5% TNB for 30 minutes at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/10 and incubated with the sample for 18 hours at 4°C. A biotinylated goat anti-rat antibody, diluted 1/500, was used as the secondary. This image demonstrates quiescent microglia in the normal mouse brain (red).
ab6640 staining F4/80 in mouse adipose tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent formaldehyde fixation and blocking with 5% serum was performed for 20 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/150 and incubated with sample in Tris + 5 % normal rabbit serum for 1 hour at 20°C. A Biotin conjugated rabbit polyclonal to rat IgG was used at dilution at 1/50 as secondary antibody. The antibody stained interstitial macrophages in the adipose tissue of lean mice (A), and macrophage associated with "crown-like structure" in mice fed high-fat diet (B).
ab6640 staining F4/80 in mouse bone marrow cells by immunocytochemistry/ immunofluorescence. Cells were formaldehyde fixed and permeabilized in 0.2% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 2% BSA for 30 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 9 hour at 4°C. Alexa fluor® 488 goat polyclonal to rat Ig, diluted 1/200, was used as the secondary antibody.
