Anti-GM130 antibody - Drosophila Golgi/Cis-Golgi Marker images

  • The image shows staining of Drosophila S2 cells using ab30637 to cis-Golgi/Golgi marker, GM130. For comparison, S2 cells were stained with an antibody to the trans-Golgi marker, GCC88. Gm130 stained the cis-Golgi region and appears to be a superior Golgi marker to GCC88.
