Overview

  • Product nameAnti-BMP6 antibody [morph-6.1]
    See all BMP6 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [morph-6.1] to BMP6
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: IHC-P, ICC/IF, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Dog, Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide:

    MPGLGRRAQWLCWWWGLLCSCCGPPPLRP

    conjugated to KLH, corresponding to amino acids 1-29 of Rat BMP6.

  • Positive control
    • Positive staining can be observed in embryonic and adult central nervous system. Rat radial glial cells of the developing central nervous system from E11 to E19. In rat peripheral nerves a selective intracellular immunoreactivity can be found in perinuclear region of most Schwann cells which form the myelin sheath. However, some Schwann cells were negative for the antigen.
  • General notes


    Pre-incubation of anti BMP6 with amino-terminal peptide 1-29 of BMP6 inhibits binding of the mAb to tissue sections. Pre-incubation with other amino-terminal synthetic peptides of human BMP7, BMP4, BMP3 and BMP2 as well as an irrelevant peptide does not inhibit specific tissue staining.

  • ab15640 staining human U2-OS cells by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in Triton-X-100 prior to blocking in 2% serum for 1 hour at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 37°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor®488 conjugated chicken anti-mouse, diluted 1/1000.

  • ICC/IF image of ab15640 staining primary myoblast cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 5% normal donkey serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tritonx100 for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab15640, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488donkey anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h.
