Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab72061 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/500 - 1/2000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 250 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 208 kDa).
IP Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.

    Developed using the ECL technique

    Predicted band size : 208 kDa
    Observed band size : 250 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 31 kDa,41 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 3 minutes
  • Detection of Human BIG1 by Immunoprecipitation in 1mg whole cell lysate from HeLa cells, using ab72061 at 3 µg/mg lysate (lane 1) or a control rabbit IgG (lane 2). Subsequent Western blot detection was performed using ab72061 at 1 µg/ml on 20% of the imunoprecipitate.
