  • IHC image of BMP2 staining in human breast adenocarcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab82511, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

  • Anti-BMP2 antibody (ab82511) at 1 µg/ml + Caco 2 (Human colonic carcinoma cell line) Whole Cell Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 44 kDa
    Observed band size : 46 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

    Exposure time : 20 minutes Bone morphogenetic protein 2 contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
  • Anti-BMP2 antibody (ab82511) at 1 µg/ml + Colon (Mouse) Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Predicted band size : 44 kDa
    Observed band size : 46 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • ICC/IF image of ab82511 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab82511, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest.

We have not specifically tested this but as the immunogen for ab82511 (and ab14933) is designed to aa 45-60 and Swiss-Prot states the location of the amino acids that are glycosylated are at aa 13...
