This product is a recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab52478 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||1/100 - 1/250.|
|IHC-FoFr||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||1/20000 - 1/50000. Predicted molecular weight: 128 kDa.|
|Flow Cyt||1/20 - 1/50.
ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
Overlay histogram showing RAW 264.7 cells stained with ab52478 (red line). The cells were fixed with methanol (5 minutes) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 minutes. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab52478, 1/50 dilution) for 30 minutes at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 minutes at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit monoclonal IgG (1 µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in RAW 264.7 cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 minutes)/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween used under the same conditions.
IHC image of CD11b staining in a formalin fixed, paraffin embedded normal human spleen 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 (pH 6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 minutes. The section was then incubated with ab52478, 5 µg/ml, for 15 minutes 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.
