• Product nameAnti-Dlx2 antibody
    See all Dlx2 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to Dlx2
  • Specificityab30339 specifically detects Dlx2 in mouse and rat brain at 34 kDa. In our hands, ab30339 did not detect the same band in human brain (see data below).
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, ICC/IFmore details
    Unsuitable for: IHC (PFA fixed)
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat
    Predicted to work with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide derived from within residues 200 - 300 of Mouse Dlx2.

    (Peptide available as ab19341.)

  • Positive control
    • This antibody gave a positive signal in mouse and rat embryonic and adult brain lysates.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab30339 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
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa).Can be blocked with Mouse Dlx2 peptide (ab19341).
ICC/IF 1/200.

      This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 2% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab30339 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution ab133406.

    • ab30339 staining Dlx2 in mouse Cor1 cells by ICC/IF. The cells were formaldehyde fixed, permeabilized in TBS/BSA/azide/Triton-x 0.3% buffer and blocked in 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/200, and incubated with sample for 2 hour at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG, diluted 1/600 was used as the secondary antibody.
