Anti-LDHA antibody images

  • LDHA was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Hela whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to LDHA and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).

    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Hela whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.

    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70°C; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab47010.

    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).

  • ICC/IF image of ab47010 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were PFA fixed (10 min), permabilised in TBS-T (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab47010, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to quench autofluorescence and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. 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). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).
  • IHC image of Lactate Dehydrogenase staining in human breast carcinoma FFPE section, performed on a Leica 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 ab47010, 1µg/ml, for 15 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.
  • ab47010 at a 1/400 dilution staining LDHA in human skeletal muscle sections by Immunohistochemistry (formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) incubated for 20 minutes at 25°C. Heat mediated antigen retrieval used, EDTA ph 9.0, 100°C for 20 minutes. Secondary used undiluted, goat anti-mouse/rabbit IgG conjugated to HRP polymer.

Thank you for contacting Abcam. I’ve had a look into this and done a bit of a web search and as far as I can see LDH5, LDHM and LDHA are all different names for the same protein, as stated in this paper, http://www.pnas.org/content/107/5/2037.long....
