  • Immunohistochemical analysis of Mytilus galloprovincialis digestive gland tissue after exposure to pollutant, staining Acid Phosphatase with ab2108.

    Tissue was fixed in 4% formaldehyde and embedded in paraffin. Sections were blocked with 1% BSA at room temperature for 1 hour before incubating with primary antibody (1/2500) overnight at 4°C. An anti-rabbit peroxidase-conjugated IgG was used as the secondary antibody. Staining was detected using AEC.

Product Wall

Thank you for your enquiry. The supplier used purified enzyme as a positive control in the Westerns for this antibody. I'm afraid I don't know if potato homogenate would work. If you have any more questions, please contact us again.

96kDa, non-reducing.

This antibody can be directly conjugated with a fluorescent label or used in conjunction with a fluorescently labelled secondary antibody in the applications listed on the datasheet.

I have made enquiries about the nature of Potato Acid Phosphatase used as the immunogen for this product, but I am afraid I have been unable to find any information regarding whether it is the particular type of acid phosphatase you have specified

This antibody has not yet been tested for use with paraffin embedded tissue.

Acid phosphatase is a heterodimer of 44 kDa units and the antibody will recognize EI, EII, and EIII forms of the enzyme. The immunogen is the enqyme from potato. We do not have the amino acid sequence of this enzyme.

This antibody has not, to our knowledge, been tested on rat tissue. We have no data on its use in IHC.
