    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 52 kDa
    Observed band size : 52 kDa
    Additional bands at : 100 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 8 minutes

    This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Milk before being incubated with ab73164 in 2% Milk, overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.

  • ab73164 staining human brain sections in IHC-P. The tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrival step was performed. Blocking of the sample was done with 5 minutes of peroxidase block and 10 minutes of protein block, followed by staining with ab73164 at 1/200 for 45 minutes at 20°C. A HRP conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody was used as the secondary antibody.
