ab81298 staining FAK (phospho Y397) in SK-N-SH cells treated with anandamide (ethanol solution) (ab120087), by ICC/IF. Increase in FAK (phospho Y397) expression correlates with increased concentration of anandamide (ethanol solution), as described in literature. The cells were incubated at 37°C for 10 minutes in media containing different concentrations of ab120087 (anandamide (ethanol solution)) in ethanol, fixed with 100% methanol for 5 minutes at -20°C and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab81298 (5 µg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab96899) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue. Membranes are stained in red with WGA.
