    Predicted band size : 78 kDa
    Observed band size : 75 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 100 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    ab21685 recognises a band of ~ 75 kDa in CHO, mouse liver, rat liver and HeLa whole cell lysates, corresponding to GRP78 BiP. This band is quenched by the addition of the immunizing peptide, ab22410.

    ab21685 also detects a 100 kDa band in Western Blot. We are unsure of the identity of this protein.

  • IHC image of GRP78 BiP staining in human liver carcinoma FFPE section, performed on a BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab21685, 1µg/ml, for 8 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

Thank you for contacting us.

ab2185 Immunogen sequence is more than 90% similar with Pig HIF1 alpha so this antibody is more likely to cross react.
