Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab80947 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution. ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1/62500.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 65 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 58 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • Function
    Catalyzes the reversible transamination between alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to form pyruvate and glutamate.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed at high levels in muscle, adipose tissue, kidney and brain and at lower levels in the liver and breast.
  • Pathway
    Amino-acid degradation; L-alanine degradation via transaminase pathway; pyruvate from L-alanine: step 1/1.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the class-I pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. Alanine aminotransferase subfamily.

  • ICC/IF image of ab80947 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab80947, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h.Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
