  • DUSP6a antibody (ab54940) used in immunohistochemistry at 3ug/ml on formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human pancreas.

  • Predicted band size : 42 kDa
    DUSP6a antibody (ab54940) at 1ug/lane + Jurkat cell lysate at 25ug/lane.
  • ab54940 at 10 ug/ml staining DUSP6 in human Hela cells by Immunocytochemistry / Immunofluorescence.

  • Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab54940 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. 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 (ab54940, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween used under the same conditions.
