Synthetic peptide conjugated to KLH derived from within residues 200 to the C-terminus of Rat GAP43.
(Peptide available as ab16379.)
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab16053 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC (PFA fixed)||1/300 - 1/1000.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 43-53 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 43-53 kDa).Can be blocked with Rat GAP43 peptide (ab16379).|
Immunofluorescent staining obtained with ab16053 Rabbit polyclonal to GAP43 in rat dorsal root ganglion, 2 weeks after a spinal nerve injury. The staining is localised in the cytoplasm of some lesioned neurons (arrow in B) and in many axons (arrow heads in B). Image B (X40 objective) is a higher magnification of A (X20). The staining disappeared completely when the antibody was pre-incubated with the immunising (blocking) peptide (ab16379).
Protocol details: Rats were intracardially perfused with 4% paraformaldehyde, DRG tissue was post-fixed overnight in the same fixative, cryoprotected in 20% sucrose and frozen in OCT. IHC free floating was performed on the fixed, frozen and cut (20µm sections) rat tissue. Primary antibody ab16053 was incubated overnight at toom temperature at 1/300. Secondary antibody Alexa fluor 488 was incubated at 1/1000 for 2 hours at room temperature.
