Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab22609 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-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22201125
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 50 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa).

Anti-CaMKII antibody [6G9] images

  • IHC image of ab22609 staining in Rat normal brain (Purkinje cells, cerebellum) formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM 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 ab22609, 1µg/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.

    Goat polyclonal to Mouse IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) (ab65485) at 1/5000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 56 kDa
    Observed band size : 50 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 100 kDa,65 kDa,70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 5 minutes
