    Baicalein images

    • ab51608 staining HIF1α in HepG2 cells treated with baicalein (ab120723), by ICC/IF. Increase in HIF1α expression correlates with increased concentration of baicalein as described in literature.
      The cells were incubated at 37°C for 6h in media containing different concentrations of ab120723 (baicalein) in DMSO, fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature 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 ab51608 (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.
