Goat Anti-Chicken IgY H&L (Biotin) images

  • ab89999 staining GFAP in rat spinal cord tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 22°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citric acid. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/300 in  TBS/BSA/Azide) for 2 hours at 22°C. A biotin-conjugated goat anti-chicken IgY H&L (ab6876) (1/100) was used as the secondary antibody.

Application Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections)
Formalin-fixed paraffin wax section was subjected to HIER before incubating in anti GFP ( ab13970). Section was then incubated with ab6876 ( 1/200) followed by stABCpx. GFP was visualised using DAB chromogen

I have been informed that amine reactive biotins were used to conjugate Lysine sites of antibodies. It is not only in the Fc region. Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you need more information,

Thank you for your enquiry. All the information that we have regarding this antibody is located on the online datasheet. At this time, we do not have any data about cross-reactivity with human, rabbit and mouse proteins.

We don't have any data on the sensitivity of antibodies from DAKO, so its' difficult to compare. We do know that this antibody recognises 1µg chicken IgG at a working dilution of at least 1/20000.
