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.

IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IP Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • PathwayNitrogen metabolism; urea cycle; L-ornithine and urea from L-arginine: step 1/1.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in ARG1 are the cause of argininemia (ARGIN) [MIM:207800]; also known as hyperargininemia. Argininemia is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of the urea cycle. Arginine is elevated in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid, and periodic hyperammonemia occurs. Clinical manifestations include developmental delay, seizures, mental retardation, hypotonia, ataxia, progressive spastic quadriplegia.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the arginase family.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm.

    Predicted band size : 35 kDa
    Observed band size : 37,40 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

    Exposure time : 30 seconds
  • Liver Arginase was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Mouse Liver tissue lysate, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to Liver Arginase 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, Mouse Liver tissue lysate 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 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab91279.
    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
    Band: 37, 40kDa: liver Arginase
  • ICC/IF image of ab91279 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% PFA 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 (ab91279, 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.

The current lot of ab91279, and any lots of at least 1mg/ml, will not contain BSA but will contain 0.02% Sodium azide. I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you need any further information.

Sorry for the late reply. I am still enquirying as to the availability of these 2 antibodies in BSA-free and azide-free formulations. Thanks for your patience!
