ICC/IF Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.


  • RelevanceChitinase-3-like protein 3 (Ym1) is a lectin that binds saccharides with a free amino group, such as glucosamine or galactosamine; binding to oligomeric saccharides is much stronger. It also binds chitin and heparin. This protein has been implicated in inflammation and allergy.

Anti-Chitinase 3 like protein 3 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab93034 stained RAW 246.7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab93034 10µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
