Anti-CHD4 antibody [3F2/4] - ChIP Grade images

  • CHD4 immunoprecipitation from murine brain tissue lysate using ab70469. 5000 µg of cell lysate was incubated with primary antibody (undiluted) and matrix (protein G) and incubated for 14 hours.

    An HRP-conjugated rabbit anti-CHD4 polyclonal (1/1000) was used to detect CHD4 immunoprecipitation.

  • IHC image of CHD4 staining in human breast carcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded 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 (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab70469, 5µg/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.


    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.

  • Immunocytochemical analysis of blastocysts from Wildtype and CHD4 -/- (Knockout) mice, labeling CHD4 with ab70469. Embryos were fixed in 2.5% paraformaldehyde, permeablised with 0.25% Triton X-100 and 3% polyvinlypyrrolidone in PBS, then blocked in 10% foetal calf serum and 0.1 Triton X-100 in PBS. Immunostaining with ab70469 (diluted 1/10,000) was performed overnight at 4°C. Staining with secondary antibody was for 1 hour at RT. DAPI used for nuclear staining (blue).
