Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab2901 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 51 kDa.Can be blocked with FKBP51 peptide (ab4924). By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~51 kDa protein representing FKBP 51 in HeLa cell lysate. By Western blot this antibody also detects FKBP 51 in whole tissue extracts from rat kidney and rat and mouse testes.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 20422297

Merci pour votre enquête.

A ma connaissance, il n'existent pas des isoformes décrites de FKBP51. Il existent par contre des sites de phosphorylation. Un doublet de la bande autour de 50kD pourrait donc être du à phos...
