The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.25 - 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 80-100 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 47 kDa).
Use a concentration of 10 - 20 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml.
FunctionMay be involved in regulating membrane traffic to and from trans-Golgi network.
Tissue specificityIsoform TGN46 is widely expressed. Isoform TGN51 is more abundant in fetal lung and kidney. Isoform TGN48 is barely expressed in embryonic kidney and promyelocytic cells.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Primarily in trans-Golgi network. Cycles between the trans-Golgi network and the cell surface returning via endosomes.
Human A549 cells were fixed and permeabilized with methanol followed by acetone fixation. Fixed cells were stained with 2.5 µg/ml ab50595. The antibody was developed with Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG, FITC conjugate.
ab50595 staining human osteosarcoma (143b) cells by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.1% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 37°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 37°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 594 conjugated donkey polyclonal to rabbit diluted 1/500.

ab50595 staining TGN46 in human HeLa cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde in PBS for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X100 and blocked with 2% BSA for 30 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in 2% BSA + 0.1% Triton X100) for 2 hours at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG (dilution 1/1500) was used as secondary antibody.
