Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab17036 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.|
|ChIP||Use 5 µg for 25 µg of chromatin.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 14 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 11 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Histone H4 peptide (ab13843).
We recommend using 3% milk as the blocking agent for Western blot.
IHC image of Histone H4 staining in formalin fixed, paraffin embedded human Hodgkin's lymphoma tissue section*, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab17036, 1 µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
