The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 47 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 46 kDa).

ELISA Use a concentration of 0.01 - 0.1 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 2 - 5 µg/ml.


  • RelevanceFumarylacetoacetate hydrolase is the last enzyme in the tyrosine catabolism pathway. FAH deficiency is associated with Type 1 hereditary tyrosinemia (HT). This is an autosomal recessive inborn error of metabolism that occurs in both an acute and a chronic form. Clinical characteristics of the acute form include hepatic failure and death in infancy, whereas children with the chronic form have renal tubular dysfunction and hypophosphatemic rickets, progressive liver disease with development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Dietary treatment with restriction of tyrosine and phenylalanine alleviates the rickets, but liver transplantation has so far been the only definite treatment.

  • ab81087 at 2µg/ml staining Fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded mouse liver sections), followed by HRP linked secondary antibody, and visualized by AEC substrate, and counterstaining by hematoxylin.
  • ICC/IF image of ab81087 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10mins) 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 (ab81087, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.
