Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab64564 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
  • Application notesELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
    ICC: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
    Is unsuitable for IHC-P.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 0.2 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 66 kDa.
    Note: 0.5-2 µg/ml detects 5ng of recombinant luciferase that was added to 3T3 cell lysate.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • RelevanceLuciferase from the firefly has become one of the more widely used reporter proteins for the study of gene expression. Luciferase catalyzes a bioluminescent reaction which requires the substrate luciferin as well as Mg2+ and ATP. Mixing these reagents with the cell extract containing luciferase, results in a flash of light that decays rapidly. This light can be detected by a luminometer. The total light emission is proportional to the luciferase activity of the sample.

      Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216772) at 1/10000 dilution

      Performed under reducing conditions.

      Predicted band size : 66 kDa
      Observed band size : 65 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

      Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green – ab64564 observed at 65 kDa. Red - loading control, ab181602, observed at 37 kDa.


      This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using Licor blocking buffer before being incubated with ab64564 and ab181602 (loading control) overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed (ab216772) and Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed (ab216777) at a 1:10000 dilution for 1hr at room temperature and then imaged.
