    Pentoxifylline images

    • ab54775 staining annexin V in HeLa cells treated with pentoxifylline (ab120725), by ICC/IF. Increase of annexin V correlates with increased concentration of pentoxifylline, as described in literature.
      The cells were incubated at 37°C for 24h in media containing different concentrations of ab120725 (pentoxifylline) in DMSO, fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab54775 (10 µg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 goat anti-mouse polyclonal antibody (ab96879) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue.
