Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab69983 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|Flow Cyt||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 24886842ab171870-Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|WB||1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 117 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 117 kDa).|
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.|
Ab69983 (2µg/ml) staining MDA5 in human thyroid gland using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong cytoplasmic and moderate nuclear staining.
Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.
