ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Lanes 1, 3 and 5: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 2, 4 and 6: CDK4 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1 and 2: Green signal from target - ab108357 observed at 34 kDa
Lanes 3 and 4: Red signal from loading control - ab8226 observed at 42 kDa
Lanes 5 and 6: Merged (red and green) signal
ab108357 was shown to specifically react with CDK4 when CDK4 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and CDK4 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab108357 and ab8226 (loading control to beta actin) were both diluted at 1/1000 and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with goat anti-rabbit IgG (H + L) and goat anti-mouse IgG (H + L) secondary antibodies at 1/10 000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
ab108357 staining Cdk4 in wild-type HAP1 cells (top panel) and Cdk4 knockout HAP1 cells (bottom panel). The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated with ab108357 at 1/500 dilution and ab195889 at 1/250 dilution (shown in pseudo colour red) overnight at +4°C, followed by a further incubation at room temperature for 1h with a goat secondary antibody to Rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150081) at 2 μg/ml (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.
Blocking and dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human cervix carcinoma tissue labelling Cdk4 with purified ab108357 at 1/100. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9. ab97051, a HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) was used as the secondary antibody (1/500). Negative control using PBS instead of primary antibody. Counterstained with hematoxylin.
Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of MCF7 cells labelling Cdk4 with purified ab108357 at 1/100. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. ab150077, an Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody. DAPI (blue) was used as the nuclear counterstain. ab7291, a mouse anti-tubulin (1/1000) and ab150120, an Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG (1/500) were also used.
Control 1: primary antibody (1/100) and secondary antibody, ab150120, an Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG (1/500).
Flow Cytometry analysis of MCF7 cells labelling Cdk4 with purified ab108357 at 1/40 (red). Cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde. A FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/150) was used as the secondary antibody. Black - Isotype control, rabbit monoclonal IgG. Blue - Unlabelled control, cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies.
