Anti-GDF15 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of human bone marrow smear stained with Ab39999(1/250). The smear was permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Triton X for 1h and incubated with 10% donkey serum for 1hr at 24°C to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The sections were then incubated with ab39999 used at 1/250 dilution, overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 568 donkey anti-goat used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

  • Anti-GDF15 antibody (ab39999) at 0.3 µg/ml + Human Prostate lysate in RIPA buffer at 35 µg

    Predicted band size : 34 kDa
    Observed band size : 35 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Primary incubation was 1 hour. Detected by chemiluminescence.
