IHC-FrFl Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 24223856
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 280 kDa. (see Farah et al).
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-FoFr 1/500. PubMed: 20424326

Target

Anti-MAP2 antibody [HM-2] images

  • ab11267 staining MAP2 in human hippocampal progenitor cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour at 18°C. Samples were incubated with the undiluted primary antibody for 12 hours at 4°C. An undiluted Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated donkey anti-mouse IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

    See Abreview

  • Immunocytochemical analysis of B35 cells labelling MAP2 with ab11267 at a concentration of 2 μg/mL. The secondary was developed using Goat anti-mouse IgG. Cells were counterstained with DAPI to stain nuclei.

  • ab11267 staining rat brain tissue sections by IHC-Fr.  Sections were PFA fixed and permeabilized in TritonX100 prior to blocking with 3% BSA for 1 hour.  The rpimary antibody was diluted 1/500 and incubated with the sample for 12 hours at 4°C.  An Alexa Fluor® conjugated goat anti-mouse was used as the secondary antibody. 

    The image shows a cross section through the rat hipocampal CA1 area at magnification 200x . The anti-MAP2 staining is clearly visible in dendrites of pyramidal cells.
