Abpromise guarantee covers the use of
in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 24 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 22 kDa).
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
Is unsuitable for ICC/IF.
Stimulates glucose uptake in differentiated adipocytes via the induction of glucose transporter SLC2A1/GLUT1 expression (but not SLC2A4/GLUT4 expression). Activity requires the presence of KLB.
Belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.

Western blot - FGF21 antibody (ab66564)
Anti-FGF21 antibody (ab66564) at 1 µg/ml +
Recombinant human FGF21 protein ( ab54141) at 0.1 µg Secondary Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution Performed under reducing conditions. Predicted band size: 22 kDa Observed band size: 24 kDa ( why is the actual band size different from the predicted?) Additional bands at: 45 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands. ab66564 recognizes the full length FGF-21 Human Recombinant Protein which has an expected molecular weight of ~19.5 kDa.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) - FGF21 antibody (ab66564)
IHC image of FGF21 staining in Human Liver Cancer formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond
TM 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 ab66564, 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.
