The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesICC/IF: Use at a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB: Use at a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa corresponding to the molecular weight of the Galectin 8 tagged recombinant protein (predicted molecular weight of Galectin 8: 35 kDa).
Not yet tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Selective expression by prostate carcinomas versus normal prostate and benign prostatic hypertrophy.
Sequence similaritiesContains 2 galectin domains.
DomainContains two homologous but distinct carbohydrate-binding domains.
ICC/IF image of ab42879 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were PFA fixed (10 min), permabilised in 0.1% PBS-Tween (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab42879, 5µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. 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). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).
