  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human breast carcinoma (left) and mouse teratoma (right) tissues labelling AKAP8 with ab72196 at 1/1000 (0.2µg/ml) and 1/200 (1µg/ml). Detection: DAB.
  • All lanes : Anti-AKAP8 antibody (ab72196) at 0.04 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : HeLa whole cell lysate at 50 µg
    Lane 2 : HeLa whole cell lysate at 15 µg
    Lane 3 : HeLa whole cell lysate at 5 µg
    Lane 4 : 293T whole cell lysate at 50 µg

    Developed using the ECL technique

    Predicted band size : 76 kDa

    Exposure time : 3 minutes
  • Immunoprecipitation of HeLa whole cell lysate (1 mg) using ab72196 at 3 µg/mg lysate. 20% of the immunoprecipitate was used for Western blot and bands were detected using ab72196 at 1 µg/ml. Bands were developed using chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 3 seconds.
    Lane 2 represents a Control IgG.
