  • ICC/IF image of ab86571 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 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 ab86571 at 0.5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab150081) IgG (H+L) preadsorbed, used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

Thank you very much for your interest in Abcam FGF18 antibodies.

The immunogen of http://www.abcam.com/ab63037 has 82% homology with the Chicken protein. However, immunogens of both http://www.abcam.com/ab86571 and http://www.abcam.com/ab13390...

Thank you for your enquiry.

I am can confirm that ab86571 FGF18 antibody is sourced externally, and regrettably the exact immunogen sequence is proprietary (commercially sensitive) on this occasion.

However, we can let you know th...

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, we have not tested ab86571 with mouse FGF18 yet. But, sequential homology between the immunogen sequence of ab86571 and mouse FGF18 (SwissProt O89101) is 100%. So, there is good possibility that ab86571 can wo...
