  • ab16039 at 1/100 dilution staining Human beta Actin in Leiomyoma by Immunohistochemistry (FFPE-sections) 

  • beta Actin was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg SK-N-SH whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to beta Actin and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).

    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, SK-N-SH whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.

    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70°C; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab16039.

    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).

    Band: 42kDa; beta Actin
