We have received mixed feedback from customers regarding rat specificity; this is why we are temporarily removing Rat from tested species list and no longer guarantee it. Our laboratory is currently testing new lots so please contact our scientific support team (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab5589 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 16797727|
|IHC-P||1/100. Antigen retrieval is not essential but may optimise staining.|
|WB||1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 133 kDa.
By Western blot ab5589 also detects eNOS in canine cardiac microsomes.
IHC image of eNOS staining in human placenta 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 ab5589, 1/100, 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.
