ab7817 staining alpha smooth muscle actin in Human liver tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with wash buffer with tween; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Tris-EDTA buffer, pH 9.0. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in blocking buffer) for 30 minutes at 20°C. A HRP-conjugated Goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (undiluted) was used as the secondary antibody.
ab7817 staining alpha smooth muscle Actin (green) in Mouse primary colon myofibroblasts by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with acetone and blocked with 5% BSA for 30 hours at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in PBS + 5% BSA) for 2 hours at 25°C. ab96875, a donkey anti-mouse DyLight®488 (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Costained with ab92547, Rabbit anti-Vimentin (red).
ab7817 staining alpha smooth muscle Actin (red) in Human lung adenocarcinoma cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehye, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 3% BSA for 30 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/400 in 1x TBS) for 3 hours at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor®633-conjugated Goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with Hoeches 33258 (blue).
Cannabinoid receptor (CB1) (green) and
Ab7817 positively staining paraformaldehyde fixed porcine valvular interstitial cells (VICs) at 1/75. Staining was carried out in conjunction with goat anti mouse Alexa Ò488 (1/400).
Ab 7817 was used to detect myofibroblsats among a heterogeneous interstitial cell type. The image shows heparin treated VICs labelled for alpha actin (green), and counterstained with propidium iodide (red).
