Full length protein corresponding to Calretinin.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab702 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
For an ABC system, dilute 1/50-1/100 and incubate for 30-60 minutes at RT.
|IHC-Fr||1/100. PubMed: 20504962
Immunohistochemical studies have recently shown calretinin to be useful in distinguishing mesotheliomas from lung adenocarcinomas. However, it is recommended that a panel of antibodies be used in tandem with calretinin. Other antibodies recommended are CK 5/6, E-cadherin, ESA or BerEP4, CEA, EMA, B72.3, Vimentin and CD15. Calretinin does not mark all mesotheliomas (50-70%).
Paraffin embedded mesothelioma stained for Calretinin with ab702 (1/100 dilution) in immunohistochemical analysis.
ab702 staining Calretinin in mouse brain tissue sections in immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 3% serum for 30 minutes at 27°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/250) for 20 hours at 4°C. A Cy3®-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/250) was used as the secondary antibody.
ab702 staining Calretinin (green) in zebrafish retinal cells by immunohistochemistry (frozen sections). Embryos were first protected by sequential incubation in 15% then 30% sucrose in phosphate-buffered saline supplemented with 0.5% Triton X-100 (PBST) for 12-16 hours at 4°C, then embedded in OCT, stored at –80°C, and sectioned at 16-20 µm using a cryostat. Embryos subjected to whole-mount in situ hybridisation were cleared in serial incubations of glycerol (25, 50, 75 and 95%), the eyes dissected and placed in a drop of glycerol then cover-slipped.
