Application Abreviews Notes
Flow Cyt 1/100. ab170190-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 68 kDa.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-FoFr 1/200 - 1/1000. Does not react with fixed tissue; add antibody to perfused but unfixed tissue, then fix after primary incubation.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab77959 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab77959, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
