• Product nameAnti-FHL2 antibody
    See all FHL2 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to FHL2
  • SpecificityReactivity with mouse FHL2 is unlikely owing to divergence of this ortholog from the peptide used for antibody production. The epitope recognized by ab1237 maps to a region between residues 175 and 225 of human Four and a Half LIM domains 2 using the numbering given in entry NP_963849.1 (GeneID 2274).
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, ICC/IFmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Human
    Predicted to work with: Chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, Gorilla, Orangutan
  • Immunogen

    A synthetic peptide which represented a portion of human FHL2 encoded within exon 7.

  • Predicted band size : 32 kDa

    Samples: Nuclear extract (NE) from HeLa cells. Antibody: Affinity purified rabbit anti-FHL2 antibody ab12327 used at 0.3 µg/ml. Detection: Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 5 minutes.
  • ICC/IF image of ab12327 stained HepG2 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 (ab12327, 1µg/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.
