Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab51253 in the following tested applications.
|WB||1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 18 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).Can be blocked with Alpha-synuclein (phospho S129) peptide (ab188826). Good results have been obtained by treating the membrane with 0.4% PFA for 30 min at room temperature before blocking it with 5% milk.|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|

IHC image of alpha Synuclein (phospho S129) staining in Human Parkinson Substantia Nigra formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section*, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab51253, 10µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. The inset negative control image is taken from an identical assay performed on Human normal Substantia Nigra.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
