ab109519 staining Galectin 8 in HeLa (human cervix adenocarcinoma) cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. Samples were incubated with primary antibody at a dilution of 1/100. A goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/1000. ab7291 and ab150120 were used as counterstains for primary antibody ab109519 and secondary antibody ab150077 respectively and DAPI was used as a nuclear counterstain.
ab109519 staining Galectin 8 in the human cell line HEK293 (human embryonic kidney) by flow cytometry. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and the sample was incubated with the primary antibody at a dilution of 1/100. A goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) at a dilution of 1/500 was used as the secondary antibody.
Isoytype control: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black)
Unlabelled control: Cell without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue)
ab109519 has weak cross-reactivity with Galectin 9.
Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin embedded rat kidney tissue section labelling Galectin 8 with purified ab109519 at dilution of 1/250. The secondary antibody used was HRP-conjugated Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (ab97051) at dilution of 1/500. The sample was counter-stained with hematoxylin. Antigen retrieval was perfomed using Tris-EDTA buffer, pH 9.0. PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control and is shown in the inset.

ab109519 staining Galectin 8 in human prostatic carcinoma tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a EDTA buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody at a dilution of 1/250. A goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) ab97051 was used as the secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/500.
Negative control 1: PBS in place of primary antibody.
Unpurified ab109519, at a 1/100 dilution, staining Human prostatic adenocarcinoma, using Immunohistochemstry, Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue.
Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with unpurified ab109519 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab109519, 1/100) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
