Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab61255 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
IP Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
ELISA 1/5000.
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/100.
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 11 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 11 kDa).



  • Histone H4 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Hela whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to Histone H4 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).

    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Hela whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.

    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70°C; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab61255.

    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).

    Band: 13kDa; Histone H4

  • ab61255 at 1/50 - 1/100 dilution staining Histone H4 in human breast carcinoma by Immunohistochemistry, Paraffin-embedded tissue, in the absence or presence of the immunising peptide.
  • All lanes : Anti-Histone H4 antibody (ab61255) at 1/500 dilution

    Lane 1 : Jurkat cell extracts treated with TSA (400nM, 24hours)
    Lane 2 : Jurkat cell extracts treated with TSA (400nM, 24hours) with the immunising peptide

    Predicted band size : 11 kDa
    Observed band size : 11 kDa
  • ICC/IF image of ab61255 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 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 (ab61255, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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.
