Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab65080 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 21 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 21 kDa).
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution
    developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 21 kDa
    Observed band size : 21 kDa
    Additional bands at : 24 kDa (possible post-translational modification).

    Exposure time : 3 minutes
    Ferritin Heavy Chain contains a number of potential phosphorylation sites (SwissProt data) which may explain it running at a slightly higher than predicted molecular weight (24 kDa).
  • IHC image of ab65080 staining in Human Normal Liver formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system. 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 ab65080, 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.
  • ICC/IF image of ab65080 stained MCF-7 cells. The cells were 4% PFA 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 (ab65080, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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.
