The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 266 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 266 kDa).
Is unsuitable for IP.
Catalyzes the rate-limiting reaction in the biogenesis of long-chain fatty acids. Carries out three functions: biotin carboxyl carrier protein, biotin carboxylase and carboxyltransferase.
Expressed in brain, placental, skeletal muscle, renal, pancreatic and adipose tissues; expressed at low level in pulmonary tissue; not detected in the liver.
Lipid metabolism; malonyl-CoA biosynthesis; malonyl-CoA from acetyl-CoA: step 1/1.
Involvement in disease
Defects in ACACA are a cause of acetyl-CoA carboxylase 1 deficiency (ACACAD) [MIM:200350]; also known as ACAC deficiency or ACC deficiency. An inborn error of de novo fatty acid synthesis associated with severe brain damage, persistent myopathy and poor growth.

Predicted band size: 266 kDa Observed band size: 266 kDa Additional bands at: 130 kDa, 90 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
IHC image of ab72046 staining in human normal skin formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with EDTA (pH9, epitope retrieval solution 2) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab72046, 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.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
