Images

  • ab32572 staining ßcatenin in SW480 cells treated with BIO (ab120891), by ICC/IF. Increase of ßcatenin expression correlates with increased concentration of BIO, as described in literature.
    The cells were incubated at 37°C for 48h in media containing different concentrations of ab120891 (BIO) 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 ab32572 (1/200) dilution was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 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.
