KMNSPSESRVPSSLTQDPSF, corresponding to amino acids 1-19 of Rat Melanopsin.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab19306 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 53,85 kDa. Endogenous melanopsin is expressed at low levels making it difficult to detect. We recommend running a positive control and conducting experiments on samples overexpressing melanopsin protein.|
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.|
Immunofluorescence and immunocytochemistry staining of Melanopsin in rat retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) can be performed using ab19306.
By Western blot, this antibody detects ~53 and ~85 kDa proteins representing overexpressed unglycosylated and glycosylated rat melanopsin from HEK 293 cells.
