ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of A431 (human epidermoid carcinoma) cells labelling alpha smooth muscle Actin (green) with purified ab32575 at 1/500. Cells were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. ab150077, Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Cells were counter-stained with ab7291, anti-Tubulin (mouse mAb) at 1/1000 followed by ab150120 AlexaFluor®594 goat anti-mouse secondary (1/1000). Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue).
For negative control 1, rabbit primary antibody and anti-mouse secondary antibody (ab150120) were used. For negative control 2, ab7291 (mouse primary antibody) was used followed by anti-rabbit secondary antibody (ab150077).
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human smooth muscle tissue labelling alpha smooth muscle Actin with purified ab32575 at a dilution of 1/200. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using EDTA buffer pH 9. ab97051, a HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) was used as the secondary antibody (1/500). Negative control using PBS instead of primary antibody. Counterstained with hematoxylin.
Flow Cytometry analysis of HeLa cells labelling alpha smooth muscle Actin with purified ab32575 at a dilution of 1/20 (red). Cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde. A FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/150) was used as the secondary antibody. Black - Isotype control, rabbit monoclonal IgG. Blue - Unlabelled control, cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of mouse smooth muscle tissue labelling alpha smooth muscle Actin with purified ab32575 at a dilution of 1/200. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using EDTA buffer pH 9. ab97051, a HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) was used as the secondary antibody (1/500). Negative control using PBS instead of primary antibody. Counterstained with hematoxylin.
Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with unpurified ab32575 (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 (unpurified ab32575, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-rabbit DyLight® 488 (IgG; H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in HeLa cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
Unpurified ab32575 staining alpha smooth muscle actin in human kidney tumour sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with acetone and blocked with 10% serum for 20 minutes at 21°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in TBS + 2% BSA + 0.02% sodium azide) for 1 hour at 21°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
